Openfire and BOSH


Could someone please give me an example how to connect to openfire server using BOSH?

I don’t understand if I can reuse streams or do I have to create new stream after I have sent/received message?

http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0124.html and http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0206.html shows examples I need to post but the problem is who to post them.


Hi! I hope it’s not too late for this response!

You can see how a bosh connection could be established doing the following:

  1. go to http://messenger.tigase.org/, using Firefox with firebug installed.

  2. log in.

  3. Check firebug’s console.

There you’ll see all the communication interchange between an XMPPP server and a client, using BOSH.

I know this is not openfire, but I believe it should work the same. Please someone correct me if I am wrong.



I spent a little bit of time attempting to make it work and did not have any luck. My best guess was that the versions of BOSH expected were not compatible.
