I have a BPM application which needs to be integrated with JIVE to have the social features. The requirement is to have have the user programatically authorized and should be dircted to the forum created for this JAVA based web application realted discussion,poll etc. In many of the sample i could see import of jivesoftware, let me know from where could i get this jar / class.
I would recommend using the Web Services in Jive for this operation. Jive is geared to be a platform more than a dependency in a project. That being said, you could totally import com.jivesoftware.* JARs into your project; however, the safer and better approach (IMO) is to leverage the REST Services to do this ... and integrate at that layer.
