You have, at first, to configure DJabberd to have a chat room (I'm not
experienced in this).

But I'm working on a similar application at this moment, the thing I'm
doing is creating two Catalyst Applications, one using
Catalyst::Engine::XMPP2 fired by an nph cgi script, and other as a
standard mod_perl application.

The nph cgi will create a new connection and authenticate the user on
the jabber server, setting a session variable with the user jid. This
application will be the one rendering the chat window.

The other application will have a Net::XMPP2::Connection for each httpd
instance (using the apache2-mpm-prefork is required because of that),
and will send the message "to" the user, which will then send the
message to the chat room using its "from" address.

So you have:

              ChatRoom <----
        ----> DJabberd --- |
        |                | |
        |                V |
   CallbackApp        ChatApp (NPH)
       ^                 |
       |                 |
       |----- User <-----|

It has been working for me, not only for chat, but also for a Web
application that is connected to a set of SOAP services available in
this same jabber server.
