I’‘ve been using the smack api for a week giving myself a crash course. One thing I’‘m curious about is the server conference.jabber.org. I’'ve personally created a couple of public chat rooms without deleting it via my code using smack. (without realizing) Does Jive software have moderators who delete old rooms to do a “little house cleaning”?
There are 2 types of rooms 1) Persistent and 2) Temporary. Usually rooms are of type temporary that means that when the last room occupant leaves the room then the room is automatically destroyed. On the other hand, if you configure the room to be persistent then the room will still remain in the list of rooms until the room owner explicitly destroys the room.
