How to integrate OpenFire with Liferay chat portlet

The chat portlet in Liferay is actually a XMPP client, thus, we can choose to integrate the Chat Portlet with an external XMPP chat server.
XMPP Chat Server to be used in this post is OpenFire.

Tools required:
1. Liferay 6.1.x
2. Chat Portlet CE
3. OpenFire


Steps:
1. download Chat Portlet CE.
2. Download and install OpenFire Server.
3. Start Liferay.
4. Deploy the Chat Portlet by putting the Chat Portlet into the <Liferay_Home>/deploy folder.
5. once Chat Portlet deployed, open the <Liferay_deployment_folder>/chat-portlet/WEB-INF/classes/portlet.properties
6. paste the following configuration into portlet.properties 

    jabber.enabled=true
    jabber.host=XMPP_SERVER_IP    jabber.import.user.enabled=true
    jabber.port=XMPP_SERVER_PORT (5222)    jabber.resource=Liferay
    jabber.service.name=
    jabber.sock5.proxy.enabled=false
    jabber.sock5.proxy.port=-1
7. Restart Liferay to active the changes.

Done!!

  1. Hello there! This article could not be written any better!
    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this.
    I most certainly will send this information to him. Fairly certain he's going to have a very good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi,
      Tested it's working fine for me.
      probably you need to check your OpenFire server started in what port number.

      Besides,
      I opened 2 browsers, and logged in as 2 different users.
      then I can see the other user online.

      Best Regards
