Openfire code customization

Dear All,

Please advise a proper way of customization/tweaking of core Openfire classes.

I found the guide http://download.igniterealtime.org/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/overlay.html,
but I’m afraid it’s related to older versions of Openfire and isn’t relevant to 4.5.x anymore…
Was such a possibility (‘custom/source’) retired at all and I have to make changes directly in source codes with further rebuild, or I’m missing something?

Thank you in advance for your help!


The overlay functionality has indeed been removed. You might benefit from the fact that Openfire now is a Maven based project, even though that does not give you the same amount of flexibility than what the old overlay mechanism gave.

Thank you very much for such a rapid confirmation! The path is clear now.
