i run an small social network which i would like to enhance with an IM-Service via Openfire. Currently user login to my site with their Mail-Adress and a password. They should be able to login with the same credentials (E-Mail and password) when they use a jabber-client to connect to the Openfire-Server. Thing is, i don’t want to give them new credentials (uid@myDomain, password) just for the Chat.
I thought about building a custom AuthProvider and was wondering if anyone of you has another solution? I have no problem in using the ofUser-Database-Table if necessary, since it already has the Mail-Adress and a Password, nut the AuthProvider needs to be changed anyway, obviously.
Any help would be appreciated.
