Manager muc history problems

Dear all,

I am a new developer to xmpp. Hope to get some feedback from you guys.

I am working on a application using xmpp muc, and I use openfire as backend. For the chatting room, I hope everyone in the room can view the whole history since the room created, but I don’t want to load whole history while user enters the room.

The request is, user can use a button like “load more history” to fetch the earlier history.

I know I can send

<presence

from=‘hag66@shakespeare.lit/pda’

id=‘n13mt3l’

to=‘coven@chat.shakespeare.lit/thirdwitch’>

to manage history, but what should I do? leave the room and re-join the room again to get earlier history?

Following settings I have enable on openfire server:

  • Log room conversations

  • Every room is persistent

Any advice is welcome.

Thanks.

Johnny
