I am looking to have a user, similar to a chatbot, that lives within a plugin. I am able to use the smack api to create a connection without an issue, but I would like to not have the TCP connection open if possible. My question is from within the plugin how can I have this “automated” user, showing as online/available, and avoid the unneeded I/O of the TCP connection from smack?
My JavaDoc searches have led me to some of the classes like LocalClientSession, but I haven’t been able to determine if that will do the job I am looking for.
I was able to get this up and running yesterday and leveraged your packet receiver to enable interaction. The bot shows as online and is available so that is perfect.
I looked through the code and I can see that I was close from what I was doing. Extending the VirtualConnection and handling the login() functionality was what I was missing. However, this plugin will serve its purposes for my little project as I am more focused on the AI of the bot itself. Very cool plugin, thanks for sharing. I will mark as solution.
