MSN: Initial personal message

initially setting the personal message is not working for msn. because the initial status is set in an extra command:

msnMessenger.getOwner().setInitStatus(((MSNTransport)getTransport()).convertXMPP StatusToMSN(presenceType));


and the updateStatus is not called up on login (like in oscar). so it’s only set after a second presence.

i added this (analog to oscar) to got it working:

perhaps a better solution is to add it to setInitStatus in the jml library

Thanks notz! GATE-343

it seem’s that updatingStatus right after succesfull login sometimes causes that online presences from users are not sent to client. i don’t know why.

setting after sync users (like oscar) seems to work.

public void syncUsers() {

try {

getTransport().syncLegacyRoster(getJID(), buddyManager.getBuddies());


catch (UserNotFoundException e) {

Log.error("Unable to sync MSN contact list for " + getJID(), e);



updateStatus(getPresence(), getVerboseStatus());



but in the meantime the verbose status get overidden by ownerStatusChanged event:

changing it to this, saves the verboseStatus. i don’t know if need this ownerStatusChanged, because it also results in a duplicate presenceMessage.

public void ownerStatusChanged(MsnMessenger messenger) {

getSession().setPresenceAndStatus(((MSNTransport)getSession().getTransport()).co nvertMSNStatusToXMPP(messenger.getOwner().getStatus()), getSession().getVerboseStatus());

// TODO: Why does JML not let us see our personal message (getPersonalMessage)

I went ahead and fixed it in JML. =)
