A Simple Case - MUC as an External Component

A few assumptions:

  1. We want to run a MUC component for a domain: 'muc.devel.tigase.org' and password 'muc-pass'
  2. The main server works at an address: devel.tigase.org and for the same virtual domain
  3. We want to connect to the server using XEP-0114 protocol and port '5270'.

There is a special configuration type for this case which simplifies setting needed to run the Tigase as an external component:


This generates a configuration for the Tigase with only one component loaded by default - component used for external component connection. If you use this configuration type, your init.properties file may look like this:

config-type = --gen-config-comp
--debug = server
--user-db = derby
--admins = admin@devel.tigase.org
--user-db-uri = jdbc:derby:/tigasedb
--virt-hosts = devel.tigase.org
--comp-name-1 = muc
--comp-class-1 = tigase.muc.MUCComponent
--external = muc.devel.tigase.org:muc-pass:connect:5270:devel.tigase.org:accept

Please note, you do not need lines:

--comp-name-1 = ext
--comp-class-1 = tigase.server.ext.ComponentProtocol

as the


automatically includes them.
