Jaybird is a Java library for using the Firebird database. You don't
install it, but you include it with the program which requires access to
the database. A 'list of HTML files' can't be all you see in the download
zip, as it includes at least a few .jar files.

As you are attempting to use Firebird as a database for OpenFire, I
suggest you consult their documentation first. The jar file you will need
for the Jaybird JDBC driver is usually jaybird-full-2.1.6.jar (in some
cases you can get away with using jaybird-2.1.6.jar. The driver-classname
is org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver , the URL-format is described in the
releasenotes, section 'JDBC URL Format'.

You will probably also need to make changes to one of the OpenFire
database scripts to be able to create the right database structure.

If you have more questions, please be more specific.
