Jappix MiniChat with Openfire


I have received a couple of emails about Jappix MiniChat not working properly with Openfire BOSH. The main issue seems to be that the Openfire BOSH is not handling the reconnection properly as the user browses from page to page.

I’ll be surprised if it did as the implementation was a few years ago and the BOSH specification has moved on since. More importantly was that it was designed to work with SparkWeb which was always resident on the web page until the user logged off. In this mode, Openfire BOSH works very well.

A possible solution for using Jappix MiniChat with Openfire is to use this same approach and keep Jappix resident on the web page as the user browses from page to page. My way of doing this is to use a main top page container with the Jappix MiniChat which puts the content web page in an

Of course, this does not always work especially if the content page promotes itself to be the top main page for security purposes like Goole Mail for example. In practice, I use Jappix MiniChat with my own web applications and even if my web page is hijacked, cross domain security will stop malicious JavaScript controlling my application.

If this solution will work for you, then use the attached HTML file and adapt it to your needs.

It is a cross domain problem. To solve cross domain problems, I use Openfire as my HTTP, PHP, BOSH and XMPP server. Everything is in the same place. I suggest you do the same and put your PHP web application inside the Jappix Plugin, otherwise go to the jappix Web site to learn how to configure for different servers. You could read the comments on this blog http://community.igniterealtime.org/blogs/ignite/2011/06/26/jappix-for-openfire- plugin to modify the read-main.php and read-hosts.php files.

I am not sure why you have a cache problem. I modify my PHP, HTML, JS files directly without restarting Openfire and I can see the changes. Check you browser settings.

Jappix is not an ignite realtime project. Please go to https://project.jappix.com/ to ask questions


I appreciate your hard work & inputs on Jappix mini with openfire. Keep it up. Not sure whether I can be of any help to you.

I need one input on you. Currenlty whenever a new user visit my website, I add them in Openfire DB via direct DB access instead of user service plugin. This new users is not getting reflected immediately in Jappix mini. Unless I do not restart the Openfire, this new users are not reflecting in Jappix Mini. I am not in position to use user service plugin, because I have added one extra column in ofUser to take of their membership ( GOLD or PREMIUM Or FREE )

I am not sure how to handle this situation without restarting the openfire server. Restarting the Openfire server everytime for every new user is not feasible at all.

How can I remove the cache time, or refresh the cache so that new user reflect in Jappix minilist of online users. Please help or advice as this openfire issue not jappix mini.

Clearing the jappix mini /store/cache also do NOT help in reflecting the new Users. I can see that this new Users are online ( Green ) when I check their status in Openfire admin.

Thank you for the kind words

Your problem is NOT Jappix, but the Openfire user cache. You need to tell Openfire to refresh its cache much quicker. Read this post at http://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-1673.

The property you probably want to change is cache.userCache.maxLifetime. A value of 60000 will force a fresh every minute.

I have added the cache.userCache.maxLifetim as value of 60000 in system properties however it did NOT work. When a new is getting added via DB, It is not reflecting for even 10 minutes however I see them online ( Green ) in openfire. I am not sure whether the below property is causing the problem.

cache.username2roster.maxLifetime 419430400
xmpp.pep.enabled false

They were added for meantime & memory leak in PEP.

Secondly, Please that all the new Users are for a same Group. I mean any two new users are added to one group only.

Please advice should I reduce

cache.username2roster.maxLifetime 419430400 to 60000

I am not sure about impact & performance.

I am not sure the impact & performance I will face but I have done below changes…

Openfire Cache I have set to 60000 ( 1 minute ) for all.





**cache.groupMeta.maxLifetime **

This has helped me to get the newuser reflect within span of one minite. Please advice any adverse impact or Memory or concurrent users capacity

There are other people on this community who know Openfire better than me. Go and post your questions to them in the Openfire support forum
