Delete a user

How do I delete a user ?

Can I delete a user without login ?

Hey Tan Chen,

You may want to delete the user from the server side. If you are using Wildfire you can do it from the admin console. Wildfire supports ad-hoc commands (similar to RPC) so in a future version you should also be able to delete users from your client (if you are an administrator).

To delete your[/b] user from Smack you should be logged in. Use the following code to delete your account.

I would like to delete the user by code - smack api, not on the server side.

Here is my code:

public void deleteUser()


XMPPConnection l_xmmpConnection = null;



PrintLog(“Delete user.”);

l_xmmpConnection = new XMPPConnection(“jabber.org”, 5222);

l_xmmpConnection.login(“tancy”, “tancy”);

AccountManager l_accountManager = l_xmmpConnection.getAccountManager();


PrintLog(“User is deleted.”);


catch (Exception ex)


PrintLog("Exception in deleteUser: " + ex.toString());




After I ran, I got:

E:\Jabber\API\Smack 2.1.0\code>java -classpath …/smack.jar;…/smackx.jar;./ Test

Delete user.

Exception in deleteUser: No response from server.:

How come I have an exception ? But the tancy user indeed was deleted. How come ?
