Ignite Realtime is the community site for the users and developers of Jive Software's open source Real Time Communications projects. Your involvement is helping to change the open RTC landscape.
Guus has generously provided a new Openfire plugin that implements XEP 0363 and shows off the flexibility of having the Jetty web server embedded in Openfire. If you want to perform file upload/download from the Candy Chat web application and other Strophe based web applications, then take a look at this Candy Chat plugin.
You can either drag and drop the files into the conversation window directly or click on the paperclip icon in the toolbar to select files. It then does the following:
The candy upload plugin is now available in Pàdé 0.1.15.
You can also upload/download from a video-conference using Jitsi Meet in Pàdé. Only drag and drop is supported for uploading. Drag the file and drop anywhere on the conversation panel to upload the file. When the load is uploaded, a clickable link appears in the conversation.
Screen sharing with Openfire Meetings is a bit tricky no thanks to Google?s WebRTC security policy to use Chrome extensions for trust. This means you have to develop a personalised chrome extension to white-list your domain as trusted. I don?t use Firefox and consequently have no idea of the user experience.
With Pàdé version 0.1.13, I have tried to improve the experience as follows:
If you use ofmeet from Pàdé exclusively, then you can screen/desk share from any domain. No extra work involved.
If you still use the ofmeet 0.3.x version, then you can use Pàdé to provide screen/desk-share from any domain as well. You should check ?Desktop Share mode only? in the options screen
If you are using the ofmeet latest 0.9.x version, then you have to white-list your domain in order for Pàdé to support it. To do this, you can either raise a PR on the Pàdé repository at GitHub or raise an issue and I will add it manually. When the next Pàdé release is made, your domain should be supported.
Please note that your domain name will be exposed. This should not be a problem for a private network, but could expose your server if your domain is on the Internet. In that case, write your own chrome extension for Openfire Meetings or pay someone to do it or simply use Pàdé
The Ignite Realtime Community is thrilled to announce the availability of Openfire 4.2.1. But wait, you may wonder why Openfire 4.2.0 was not announced nor blogged about. The answer is that after a soft release of Openfire 4.2.0, we noticed a number of folks hitting a database schema issue that would cause logins to fail. We decided to turn around a fix for that issue and now fully announce the new release.
So what has changed with Openfire 4.2? A lot! Some highlights:

You will need at least the following four openfire plugins to use it.
Pàdé will fetch the logged in user?s contact roster as well as all the bookmarks configured for the user. To see, the contacts, conference rooms and web page urls, right click on the Openfire icon.
A normal left click on the Openfire icon causes Pàdé to open into a Jitsi Meet video-conference with the currently selected contact or multi-chat room.
If the meeting is with a contact, then the meeting url is sent to the contact as a standard chat message. When Pàdé receives such a message, it displays a notification to the user.
Accepting the invitation opens the Jitsi Meet video-conference window.
