Jabber User Authentication

Hi!

We’'re here planning a finacial website with a community part and I thought about using wildfire and a customized jwchat as a communication plattform.

If I recall correctly it is possible with drupal to do the user authentication with jabber, I think it’'s a nice idea. Does anyone has information about that? Where is the user profile saved (I only found the usernames and passwords in the database)? Would it be hard to implement?

thanks in advance,

bye

The authentication and user managment systems of Wildfire are completly plugable. If drupal uses a database that is compatible with JDBC there is a JDBC AuthProvider that may fit your needs.

Hope that helps,

Alex

Drupal stores user id, password, and profile in the drupal_users table. The password is stored as an MD5 hash.so you’'ll need this patch to the JDBC Auth Provider: JM-704
