Oops! After getting Wildfire installed and being impressed with it I think I made a mistake. I chose Wildfire because of this list at jabber.org which said it had a commandline interface. Actually after not being able to find it I went back and re-read the list of features and it was ejabberd that had the commandline interface so I made a mistake and overlooked something important.
Before I jump ship (again) and move to a new jabber server is there any way at all that I can add users via a shell script? I don’‘t need to do anything else but add users and make sure they’‘re in the default global group. I’‘m willing hack it if I have to because Wildfire does look nice. I have a system where a machine who’‘s OS was created from a generic image is plugged into the network, accesses a server and changes it’'s hostname, user account and hopefully jabber id. That means from a shell script I need to add users to the Wildfire server and include them in the “Global Roster” .
My thoughts wander to using MySQL and adding data by redirecting to the mysql command. Also since I’‘m getting desperate I looked around to see if the embedded database is text and can’'t find it.
I realize I should have paid more attention to which jabber server had which features beforehand but I’'d like to stick with Wildfire if I can.
Can Smack and some Java code save me?
