I am new to JIVE. I am trying to authenticate user with SHA-1 digest and our database tables rather than using the jive
messenger table. After authenticating the user, we want to send a unique_id (stored in DB) to the JIVE server and then
eventually to the client. We want to store this unique_id in the client.
I have implemented an extension to authentication and this is working. I need help with sending this unique_id that is
generated by the DB during authentication to the client.
I would like to use the plug-in approach (let me know if there is a better way):
The flow is: after DB authentication -> JIVE server gets unique_id and stores it in an object -> JIVE server sends
success message to client -> Client receives success message, this triggers creation of a new message requesting
unique_id -> JIVE server Plug-in gets message, acts on it by retrieving unique_id, creating a message and sending to
I have looked at the sample plug-ins (Search and others) … they seem complicated. The questions are: do I really
need admin JSP pages? What if I want the plugin to be “active” all the time? Does anyone have a paired down version of
plugin code that has the minimum methods. I am assuming I need an IQHandler plugin.
