Limit the number of messages

Hi

I am running jive and jwchat over resin, and i have a couple of questions:

I would like to integrate my current username and password database with jive so i dont have to manage 2 db’'s How can i do this?

Also, i would like to limit the number of messages sent by one user to another, i was thinking something like a counter so a user is allowed an “X” number of messages per day. could someone tell me if this has been done before or what is the best way to do it…?

Thanks in advance…

There are lots of threads on forums on this topic, do a search. The basic idea is to extend UserProvider/AuthProvider classes to tie into your database/schema. Is there a knowledge base article on this yet? There probably should be, but I can’'t seem to find it.

Sounds like a nice idea. A plugin to intercept and maintain a counter would be fairly easy to implement. See the plugin dev guide and lots of forum threads on Jive Messenger Dev forum.

this is the kb article on adding custom User/Auth integrations.
