Is there any web based client application available for Open Source IM Server other than SPARK ( Open Source IM Client ). I want users to use web based client application for sigin to server without installing any client software on their systems.
Thanks in advance.
did you look at http://jwchat.sourceforge.net/ and http://jwchat.org/ ?
Spark is far away from being web based while one can of course create a java webstart application.
Have you implemented it ? i spend a whole day playing with it! but unable to get any positive results.after copying JHB in the webapps folder of tomcat apache. Don’'t know how to integrate it with tomcat
if anybody installed it on linux please guide me
Thanks in advance.
there are some threads regarding this in the forum, using jwchat.war which contains JHB and jwchat and wildfire.war (v 2.6.2) http://www.jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/wildfire_2_6_2.war as there is currently no Wildfire_3_0.war
Rename it to wildfire[/b].war and deploy it, then open http://127.0.0.1:8080/wildfire and configure Wildfire. Allow unencrypted connections (default, don’'t disable it).
Deploy jwchat[/b].war (without -0.3.b) and modify then webapps/jwchat/config.js:
var SITENAME = “your-xmpp-domain”
var DEFAULTCONFERENCESERVER = “conference.” + SITENAME;
Then http://127.0.0.1:8080/jwchat should let you login. There are some known issues (search, conference) and how to resolve them can be found in http://jwchat.sourceforge.net/support.shtml
It seems that no one, including me, did find the time to write down the things which must be tweaked so far.
I’'d like to second that.
After spending way to much time trying to get jwchat to work properly I gave up. The war build will work but I don’'t know how to guide normal users through it.
Configuring jeti took about 15-30 minutes and does what it’'s supposed to do.
normal users do better not try to install and run server software as they usually have no idea what the word backup does mean …
The Jeti applet or a Spark Webstart application are of course other options, I wonder whether one can integrate Jeti ‘‘nice’’ in an intranet web page.
You also have a jeti webstart version
First of all I’'m not a normal user but I will have to get them to use whatever I give them, the more barriers, the less likely it is that they will really use it.
If I wouldn’‘t have found jeti I would have written something in PHP, for the current project I’'m working on jeti will do nicely.
