presence.getStatus not always returning status and status mesage

Hi,

I am using the below code to fetch all the contacts but presence.getStatus not always returning the contacts status.

  1. connected to openfire server

  2. loged into openfire server

  3. Called the below function

Putting a arbitary sleep is not a proper solution. Also if i add presense listener that is a solution when a user is changing his presense. This will not catch initial presense while retreiving all the contacts.

Please help to solve this common problem.

**Why **presencestatus = p.getStatus(); is null but not always ??

public boolean XMPPRetreiveRosters(Roster roster,ArrayList AllContacts)
{
Collection entries = roster.getEntries();

        if(entries == null)
            return false;
       
        Iterator it = entries.iterator();
