Extending session or presence

Is it possible to extend the Session or Presence with custom properties? I’'m interesting in augmenting user presence information with additional information specific to the session in question.

thx,

dave

Dave,

You can certainly add custom packet extensions to presence packets in your own namespace. Recent versions of Jive Messnger should pass those packet extensions through to other users with no problems. Is that what you were looking for, or something else?

Matt,

Thanks for the fast response. I was actually looking to set a variable or property at the session level, so i don’‘t have to send it with every packet. I would set it when a user first initiates a session. It’'s possible i might need to reset it during the session, but not on every message.

thanks,

dave

matt,

Actually, you did answer my question (i’‘m still getting up to speed on the technology). After better understanding presence packets, this is exactly what i’'m looking for.

thanks,

dave
