Outgoing FileTransfer within Openfire Plugin

Hi All,

I am trying to find out how to use Openfire APIs to support an outgoing file transfer triggered within an Openfire Plugin.

Here are some more details what I am trying to implement

  • a client connects to the Openfire server and requests a file update
  • the file update request is intercepted by the new plugin and the plugin sends back the updated file using the file transfer capabilites

I did not find any APIs which are supporting such an outgoing file transfer very easily. In comparison to the smack library where an outgoing file transfer class is supported, I am missing this in the Openfire APIs.

Do I have to

  • implement the file transfer from an XMPP client perspective
  • use smack
  • and connect within the plugin to the Openfire Server?

I appreciate any ideas, help!
