Jive Messenger source code help

Hiii all…

I am new to this jive messenger and it’'s API…

I want to have tutorial or help for jive messenger api, I have java documentation for it, but it’'s very confusing for me.

If anybody can guide me about this then it would be nice…

Thanking you,

Pranav Thakker

Hi pranav,

If you could give me some informaion on what you’'re trying to do with Messenger I can try to point you in the right direction.



Hey Ryan,

Thanks for your reply.

Well, my aim is to build XMPP base server and client…

For client I am planning to use SMACK API, and good thing about it is, it comes with very good documentation (not java doc only), so I can easily understand which function is doing what.

and for server, I will use Jive messenger API, problem with it is that, it has given only java doc, not any other type of documentation or tutorial.

So, it’'s very hard for me to understand the code.

I hope you can understand my problem…

Thanking you,

Hi Pranav,

I think I understand where the confusion is coming from, Messenger is already a fully-functional XMPP based server, not an api. To use it all you need to do is url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/downloads.jspdownload[/url] the appropriate version for whichever platform you will be running it on and then just follow the setup instructions.

If you want to extend the functionality of Messenger download the url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/source.jspsource[/url] and take a look at the plugin-dev-guide.html located in the docs directory. Of course, with Messenger being open-source you can change it’'s source as long as you conform to the GPL.

Hope that helps,
