Finding a user using his Email


Is it possible to get the full JID of a user after proceding a search on his email, and how ?


I’'d like to know how to do this also.

The code sample in the UserSearchManager javadoc is obsolete, and no longer compiles:

XMPPConnection con = new XMPPConnection(“jabber.org”);

con.login(“john”, “doe”);

UserSearchManager search = new UserSearchManager(con, “users.jabber.org”);

Form searchForm = search.getSearchForm();

Form answerForm = searchForm.createAnswerForm();

answerForm.setAnswer(“last”, “DeMoro”);

ReportedData data = search.getSearchResults(answerForm);

Hi Guys,

Below is an simple example of how to use the search manager using Smack 3.0.x and Openfire with the latest version of the search plugin. You’‘ll notice I’‘ve hardcoded some of the variables (such as the search service url) and didn’'t put the results into any sort of table to keep the code somewhat reasonable in length.
