GroupChat - room requires password

Hello. I have about 24 hours experience with smack and jabber. I can connect to a room and post messages using smack, but if I set the configuration to require a password, I can’‘t connect anymore using smack. Couldn’'t find anything about group chat passwords in the documentation. If all I want to do is restrict the room to certain known users, is there a simpler way ? Any ideas ?

Dear Martin,

Can you let me know the server you are using ?

Looks like you are trying to use some MUC features. I guess you have to wait for direct support from Smack but you can roll your own.

You may want to look at

I’'m connecting to conference.jabber.org

I’'ve had a look at jep-0045, but I quickly felt out of my depth. Direct support from Smack - is this weeks, months, years ? Maybe roll my own will be the solution.

We have no immediate plans to fully implement MUC, although I think it will likely happen in several months. Just adding password support yourself may not be too bad though.

Thanks for this feedback. I’‘ll look into what development I need to do when I’'ve got more time.
