Integrating Spark with existing my sql server database

Hello All,

I have a website and 4000 registered users. I want to install Spark as a chat client for my website. I am using MySQL database and I have all the registered users in that database. How can I call that database for the existing users to login through Spark?

Can someone please help with the set up and integration to start with?

Spark is an XMPP client and needs and XMPP server to work with. It might be possible to use your database with an XMPP server through a hybrid provider, but that can be tricky. Can’t help with that though.

So, I install XMPP server and add my database details in the properties file to connect to the database. Is that a right way to connect to my own database?

In theory, yes. But i don’t know how to do this exactly and that might be more complicated than just pointing Openfire to your website’s database.

My apologies for any confusion above.

I want my users to install Spark on their system. Behind the scenes I want spark to connect to the existing MySql database through OpenFire XMPP server. I hope this is do able? Isn’t it?

I understood it this way the first time. So my reply still valid. I just can’t help with configuring Hybrid Provider as i never did it and don’t know how to do it. There is this guide though Openfire: Custom Database Integration Guide

I’m not sure if you’ve seen this Stack Overflow question, but it might help as well. I will admit that I only skimmed it, but it might be worth a read. (Side note: The person who asked the question was using SHA-1. Don’t use SHA-1.)
