Message Timestamp


#1

I’‘ve been investigating smack API for use in a project. The Packet.toXML() method doesn’‘t seem to have a timestamp associated with it. Does XMPP messages have a notion of a timestamp? If so, is there any way to access it from the API? Looking over the API, it’'s not evident on if getting the timestamp is possible.

Thanks in advance,

Adam

Generally speaking, no, there are no timestamps associated with packets. Some packets do contain timestamps though, for instance offline messages delivered from the server contain timestamps.

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex,
how do I retrieve the timestamp for offline messages and MAM archived messages?

You noticed, that this Thread is 12 years old? :smiley:

Oops! Didn’t take note of that. I had used hours to find the solution before I finally threw the question without checking the timestamp :wink:

But can you help me on that or should I start new thread? :roll_eyes:
