WebReg (advanced Webinterface - Plugin)

This is a highly customized version of the registration plugin from Ryan Graham. You can see the interface on jabber.rwth-aachen.de in action. The servlet is integrated via PHP-HttpClient, so the website is able to notice if the server/plugin is down an can show a nice and user friendly error message.

  • automatic creation of vCard (fullname and email)

  • a new user can chose if he wants to see a shared group ‘‘Jabber Admins’’ in his roster. (one way subscription)
