Modifying database externally?

Is it possible to modify tables in the database externally, and cause jive to refresh? For instance, I might like to provide a simple admin interface to the roster groups, but if I add/delete rows from the tables by hand, they don’'t show up in jive.

Hi rohwedde,

Yes, you can, but as you discovered you might run into synchronization issues, that’‘s why it’'s best to use the Messenger API. Also, going against the API prevents you from putting the data into an invalid state and keeps any changes you make database neutral.

Hope that helps,

Should implement a fresh command, that way i can update the database manually and then refresh it, without having to restart the server.
