While Open Archive is basically a server side storage for users' messages, the enterprise archive offered by Jive is a tool to satisfy compliance requirements by reliably saving messages for a long time. Open Archive gives users full control over their messages so they are able to remove them at any time or disable archiving completely.
You can download the plugin from here.
Important: Rename the jar file to archive.jar before deploying it to Openfire!
