Does Openfire fully support BOSH?

Hey all, I’m busy writing a BOSH HTTP binding module for XIFF and was wondering how fully openfire supports the BOSH protocol. It seems to me that the ‘wait’ feature is not supported, and I will have to use polling mode. I can connect to the server fine, but my connections get closed immediately after I make them as opposed to respecting the ‘wait’ parameter, which makes both latency and bandwidth go through the roof.

Am I just doing something wrong? I remember reading something here a while back that Openfire is not 100% compliant with the BOSH spec. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ben,

Currently Openfire only (reliably) supports polling when using BOSH. Take a look at this thread for more info and possible workarounds.

Hope that helps,

Ryan
