Project files

Are there any distributions of Jive Messenger available with project files for Eclipse (or some other IDE)? I’'m having problems getting the source into my IDE so I can begin development.

The way I did it was to check out the code from the subversion repository (downloading the source zip/tar.gz would work as well) and then created a new project in Eclipse using the “Java Project from Existing Ant Buildfile” option and that worked pretty well. I couldn’‘t build the project directly in Eclipse for some reason and didn’'t work on that - I just ran ant from the command line and that worked great.

There’'s a knowledge base document on that. Check http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/entry.jspa?externalID=441&categoryID=17 and http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/thread.jspa?messageID=104664 for more information (mostly Eclipse, some Netbeans).

Thanks, these are helpful suggestions. I have been able to get Eclipse to recognize the Ant build file. I have a few more unique requirements that are slowing me down.

My organization uses a Web-based authentication that I’‘m trying to adapt to use with Jive. I hope to do this by hosting the Jive server in a web application that hosts a Jabber chat applet on a web page. The web page will be a dynamic JSP page that will register a user’‘s login with a Registry object. I’‘ll then write a custom authentication class that will check the same Registry object to see if the username is indeed logged in. So I’‘m trying to find a good way to use an IDE to manage all this, and I’‘d like to be able to do debugging if possible as well… I haven’'t arrived at a final solution yet.
