Send messages via HTTP Protocol

I am developing an application for my company and we use the Openfire jabber server.

My application needs to immediately alert people within the company at certain stages via our instant messenger.

Is there a que that I can drop messages into that will get sent out priodically, or any way to send messages via HTTP?

I noticed there are plugins for things such as account administration, but I did not see any plugins or have been able to find a plugin via Google in order to do this.

Thank you for your time.

Hi,

You could use HTTP binding in Openfire if you found a IM client, which supports it. But I have no experience with that.

I’ve tried to use Openfire HTTP binding with a javascript XMPP library (JSJaC library), which can be used to implement web based IM applications, such as JWChat or MUCkl . But there is some incompatibility problem, which I’ve reported at http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/thread/29550 .

I am considering to look into that maybe later. Maybe I will use some third party connection manager to do the HTTP binding. Did not try it though.

Maybe it worths to take a look at http://www.jabber.org/software/ to see what XMPP software is around.
