Admin User

Hello,

I use the jabberd2 server. I’‘ve creates an admin account on the server, so i have the privileges to see all online users. i’'ve tested this the JAJC client and it works.

But it seems that smack ignores the admin privileges of the user. I’'ve implemented the PacketListener and the RosterListener. I need the presence state information of all users, but I only get it if the presence of an user that is on my buddy list changes.

Is this actually possible with smack? (im using smack 1.3.0)

judy,

I use the jabberd2 server. I’'ve creates an admin

account on the server, so i have the privileges to

see all online users. i’'ve tested this the JAJC

client and it works.

I checked the XMPP specs and I couldn’‘t find that an admin user should receive the presence notifications of all the users in the server. Smack only supports the XMPP spec so unless this requirement is correct you won’'t find official support for it.

But it seems that smack ignores the admin privileges

of the user. I’'ve implemented the PacketListener and

the RosterListener. I need the presence state

information of all users, but I only get it if the

presence of an user that is on my buddy list

changes.

First off, you should download the latest release which is 1.4.0. This release won’'t solve your request but it adds new important features and many bug fixes.

As you noticed, Smack will only fire the RosterListeners whenever a user that is in the roster originated a presence notification. However, Smack will maintain all the received presences no matter whether the user is in the roster or not. Therefore, you can create your own PacketListener that will listen for packets of type Presence and you can use Roster.getPresence(String user) in order to retrieve the received presences.

I’'ve created my own Packetlistener, but in processPacket i only get precence packets of users in the roster?!

Judy,

Sorry for the late reply. I’'d like to check if Smack is in fact receiving those presence packets. Could you open a debugger and confirm that you are receiving those packets?

If you do receive them, I’'d like to check your PacketListener. Something like this should work for you:

PacketListener packetListener = new PacketListener() {
        public void processPacket(Packet packet) {
            Presence presence = (Presence) packet;
            System.out.println(presence);
        }
    };
    PacketFilter presenceFilter = new PacketTypeFilter(Presence.class);
    connection.addPacketListener(packetListener, presenceFilter);

Let me know how it goes.

Hello,

Thanks for your help, but it does’‘t work. I’'ve implemented the PacketListener, but i only get the Presence information of users that are on the roster.

greetings judy

Judy,

Hmm, did you open a debugger to see if those packes were actually received by Smack?

Hello,

Yes, but i don’'t receive any packets.

judy

judy,

If JAJC is receiving those packets then Smack should receive them also. You can open the JAJC’‘s debugger to check the packets that JAJC is receiving and Smack doesn’‘t. The server should behave the same way no matter the client you are using. Maybe JAJC is doing something different like browsing the user’'s directory. You can check the sent packets by Smack and JAJC in order to find the difference.
