[Patch] Application-Specific Error Conditions

I want to generate a message with an application-specific error (according to the XMPP Core RFC, section 9.3.4. or XEP-0182):

<message from='island-chess@games.shakespeare.lit' to='miranda@shakespeare.lit/desktop'type='error'> <turn xmlns='[http://jabber.org/protocol/mug#user](http://jabber.org/protocol/mug#user)'> <play xmlns='[http://jabber.org/protocol/mug/chess](http://jabber.org/protocol/mug/chess)'/> </turn> <error type='cancel'> <undefined-condition xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas'/> <invalid-turn xmlns='[http://jabber.org/protocol/mug'/](http://jabber.org/protocol/mug'/)> </error> </message>

However I don’t find a method in the org.xmpp.packet.PacketError class to realize this.

Best Regards

I solve my problem by this workaround:

` /**

  • Generate an application-secific error.
  • @param type The error type.
  • @param appErrorName The name of the application specific XML element.
  • @param appErrorNS The namespace of the application specific XML element.
  • @return The application specific error.
    private PacketError createApplicationSpecificError(
    PacketError.Type type, String appErrorName,
    String appErrorNS) {
    // Create the error element by hand
    Element error = DocumentFactory.getInstance().createElement(“error”);
    error.addAttribute(“type”, type==null?null:type.toXMPP());
    Element conditionElement = DocumentFactory.getInstance().createElement(
    if (appErrorName != null && appErrorNS != null) {
    appErrorName, appErrorNS));
    return new PacketError(error);

But it would be great if we extend the PacketError for this error type.

I wrote a patch for the PacketError class to add support for application-specific error conditions. It would be great if it gets into the trunk of Openfire or start a discussion about that topic.
