every time I send a broadcast presence to Openfire with XEP-115 Entity Capabilites attached, Openfire “responds” with a Service Discovery info request. My client then of course responds with its features and identities.
I don’t know why Openfire sends the request in the first place. Maybe he’s interested in my client’s capabilities but I don’t why it should be. The specification of XEP-115 doesn’t explicitly mention that the server should discover a client’s capabilities. Of course it can, but I understand it more of a client-to-client protocol.
Further more Openfire does not advertise support for XEP-115 in its Service Discovery response.
But the bad thing about all this, is that Openfire asks my client for its capabilities, every time it sends a Presence (e.g. with another element). The verfication string and hash is always the same! So actually Openfire should cache the capabilities.
So the whole point of XEP-115, namely less network activity, seems to be invalidated.
I first thought, maybe my verfication string is wrong, but then I tried it with the example in XEP-115 (see above) and it still behaves the same.
