I’‘m a bit confused on how chatrooms work with jive messenger (i’'m using 2.0.1).
First question: are chatrooms the same as multi-user-chat? I still don’'t understand this after looking around… my understand until now is that chatrooms would be persistent multi user chat sessions…
Second question (and main one): how do i create a persistent chatroom in jive messenger? i’'ve seen it mentioned in some message in this forum, so i assume it is possible. I can create a chatroom nicely from my client, but then it only exists while there is someone inside. And i see no reference to it in my mysql database… none at all… no logs, no room entry, nothing.
Third question: i upgraded to 2.0.1 and decided to use a mysql backend instead of hsqldb… now i cannot get the logs of the chats in the chatrooms recorded… in fact, in my 2.0.0 installation i could never track down where the logs were stored. there was some something.data file in the embedded-db directory that i imagine should be storing all of this, but as far as i can tell, it was all kept in memory, as this file never got more than size=0.
As an additional remark, the docs coming in 2.0.1 regarding the db schema description mention a jiveChatbot table that doesn’'t seem to exist. Additionally, the muc* tables are in the schema but not in the docs.
But it is a really nice piece of software…
PS: Any idea when s2s communication will be available? It is quite messy to have to create a separate account just for using the functionality deployed in one server… Bunch of people with already existing jabber accounts out there!
