Default openfire vs ejabberd

I want to install an XMPP/jabber server on OpenBSD. Would anyone with experience installing both openfire and ejabberd care to weigh in on the comparative ease of setup?

I'm looking for something that just provides basic XMPP messaging. I do not need transports to other IM networks such as AIM, MSN or Yahoo.

I would also like to install the least bloated of the two.

If there is another minimalist XMPP server option for OpenBSD that I may be overlooking, please let me know.

I don't run any XMPP servers. I just wanted to point out that ejabberd is written in Erlang and openfire is written in Java. That's something to think about before you install one of two. I would suggest you could try both. Run one at a time to observe for a while then run another one to observe. From my uneducated opinion, ejabberd appears to be a popular choice of XMPP servers.

Yes, the fact that Openfire depends on Java is enough to tip the scales in favor of trying ejabberd first. I understand that Openfire is also more feature rich and hence may be a bit more bloated.

I ended up implementing prosody. It seems to fit best with the OpenBSD philosophy of logical configuration layout and minimalist approach.
