Restricted what is show to the user ( Group Chat )

Hello All.

I have just recently started to use jive messenger, its an excellent product, thank you to the developers.

Anyway my first question, one of many probabily over the next few weeks, I’'m currently working on a project at work where I have to provide a chat platform for one of our custumers.

I’'m using Jive for the backend and WebJabber for the frontend, I have been rewriting the front end.

Firstly, does anyone know where I can get any information / examples on how to develop plugins for the Jive Messenger server, I know that there is the JavaDocs, but this is never the best for a starting point!

Also my main question, is there a way of restricting what the response is from the server, the situation is that we will be setting up serveral groupchat rooms, all which are restricted so that only allowed members can enter. However the problem I’'m getting is that when I goto the Group Chat page (Please sorry dont know terms yet!) where you should have a list of all available group chats. I see all rooms on the server which is allowed to be shown, however this is not useful as I would like to restrict the view to only what you can use / join. Is there a way to do this, or am I going to have to recode to allow me to have the functionality?

Please advise.

Thank you

Hey Christian,

Check out the url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/builds/messenger/docs/latest/documentation/plugi n-dev-guide.htmlPlugin Developer Guide[/url].

Currently it’'s not possible to filter the rooms that a user may discover using a client to show only the rooms where the user has access. That feature is not part of the url=http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0045.htmlJEP-45[/url] spec but I think that it may be very useful. So I will try to include it for JM 2.2.

FYI, I created the issue JM-335 for this enhancement request.
