Please apply for a job at Jive

10 July, 2007

At work we’re playing with Openfire, the Java-based Jabber/XMPP server. There are parts that are *cough* sub-optimal so we want to fix them. It’s open source and builds using Ant. So far, so straightforward.

I want to modify some core code so went looking for the unit tests to make sure that my changes wouldn’t break anything. Oh dear lord. A few hours of sobbing to myself later and I can only hope that they get someone for this job really soon.

Phil, we just deployed openfire here at work a couple weeks ago. I noticed in your link, problems included inability to autopopulate roster, due to LDAP groups not being supported. Might I assume you are using AD or openldap? We struggled with groups a bit using openldap and came up with a bit of a hack to get it working. Let me know some more details and perhaps I can be of assistance.

Well, the LDAP groups are supported, but there are some related problems. Cameron Moore has helped me out on which seems to be working, but we’ve got some other small problems.

We are currently on OpenLDAP but are moving sometime soon to Sun’s Directory Server I think.
