  • Installing Openfire
  • Administration of server settings and users
  • Integration with Active Directory and LDAP
  • Tuning Openfire for large numbers of users and high performance
  • Enterprise features like logging and auditing
  • Much more...


So far, I've only just started reading through the book in detail. The writing seems to be clear and detailed, while keeping a light-hearted tone. I also love the fact that the author includes lots of pictures -- it makes understanding some of the administration tasks much simpler.


We're thrilled to see the first book about an Igniterealtime Open Source project. If you get a chance to check it out, please let us know what you think.
