XMPP server authentication

All the examples in the book requires authentication directly to the XMPP, which works fine for samples.

In my web app (like in most of the web applications) i already have an user authentication mechanism setup. I'm trying to add more functionality to the site with XMPP.

So when a user is authenticated what is the best way to use the same credentials to authenticate the user on XMPP server.

You can share the authentication database by modifying the authentication plugins of your XMPP server or HTTP server (depending on which system is the master).

You could also use SASL ANONYMOUS authentication and pass in your session cookie. You could define your own authentication based on some kind of token (this is how Google Talk does it).

You can read about how we did this at Chesspark here:
