Complex computer networks consisting of many servers with different services are hard to maintain. This requires employing professional staff to operate and maintain the network.
Not all networks are so complex however, most small companies have just a few servers for their needs with services like e-mail and a HTTP server. They might want to add an XMPP server to the collection of their services and don’t want to dedicate resources on setup and maintenance. For such users our default configuration is exactly what they need. If the operating system on the server is well configured, then Tigase should automatically pickup the correct hostname and be ready to operate immediately.
Tigase server is designed and implemented to allow dynamic reconfiguration during runtime so there is no need to restart the server each time you want to change configuration settings.
There are also interfaces and handlers available to make it easy to implement a web user interface for server monitoring and configuring.
