Running Openfire


Would appreciate any assistence. Can someone give me a quick pointer for whether it’s possible to run Openfire in an application container such as Tomcat and if so what is the best approach? Also further to this, can it be run on the google app engine JRE ?

Thanks in advance!


Please see this previous discussion regarding your question about running Openfire inside of Tomcat. As for running Openfire on the GAE (Google App Engine), it is not possible to do so due to the restricted nature of the Java APIs on the GAE; specifically the inability for applications to create threads and open sockets.

Hope that helps,


Thanks Ryan. I did eventually stumble upon the org.jivesoftware.openfire.XMPPServer class which appears to be how you actually get the app running in your own container.
