Disconnecting/Kicking session

I’‘m building a plugin with special features, which uses Wf’'s routing to communicate with other participants. It works very well so far.

Now I want to be able to disconnect all sessions for a certain user. Which is the correct way of doing that?

I have found SessionManager, and located getSessions(), which gives me an array of ClientSessions. How do I now “kick” this session?

Thanks for any help!


Hi Peter,

The following code will close the session for a given user with a given resource:

SessionManager sessionManager = SessionManager.getInstance();
ClientSession clientSession = sessionManager.getSession("bob", "example.com", "work");

If a user is signed in with multiple resources (i.e. work and home) you’'d have to execute the above code twice.

Hope that helps,



I was on the right path, but wasn’'t sure how the protocol worked. Anyway, this is the result:

public void closeSessionsFor(JID account) {
     SessionManager sm = SessionManager.getInstance();
     Collection<ClientSession> cs = sm.getSessions(account.getNode());
     for (ClientSession c : cs) {

Haven’‘t tested it yet, but I’‘m sure it’'s working!

Glad to hear it.
