I am looking at demoing openfire as a way of allowing customers to access their web banking profile from atms. The atms have a “web exit,” (they aren’t on the internet) so I would use BOSH to communicate with the atms. The web banking would be accessed with an openfire plugin.
My web app is basically BOSH, so I was thinking that I would add to the openfire/resources/spank webappdir. That approach doen’t work anymore see:

Decoupled http-binding service from file system. No longer dependent on the web.xml in the spank directory. JM-1074”
I am unconvinced by the Jira:
“Currently, HTTP Binding depends upon the /spank/resources/ directory in
order to function appropriately because its servlets are defined in the
resident web.xml. If HTTP binding were loaded programatically on the
other hand that directory could not exist and the the http-binding
server would still function normally. The mission is then to decouple
the functionality of HTTP binding from the layout of the file system.”
that this was a good thing. I am thinking that I will import the code and change it back in my repository, unless someone can convince me otherwise?
