Search Extension Query


I want to use the search extension (jabber:iq:search) - XEP-0055.

I am stuck at two basic things:

  1. What should be the recipient of this IQ (the “to” attribute)? I am using Smack on the client side.

  2. How can I handle this request on the server-side? I am working on openfire as the serverside.



Hi Gaurav,

Smack already has an implementation for user search using the org.jivesoftware.smackx.search package. Are you looking to do something other than search for users?

On the Openfire side of things take a look at the search plugin which available with the Openfire source.

Hope that helps,
