Send a CC Message

Is there a way to send a Courtesy Copy (CC) message? I’ve written an application that notifies a doctor that their patient has arrived, and I’d also like to send the same message to a central administrator. Both have accounts on OpenFire, and I was hoping that there was a “configuration solution” to this problem, rather than having to send the message twice.

Thanks,

Chuck

there is a “broadcast” plugin for openfire.

maybe you can put admin and doctor in one group, then send message to the broadcast group.

not tested. so not sure if it applies your situation

Xiao Ma,

Thanks for the very quick reply! I had not seen the Broadcast plugin (but, I should have!). The Broadcast plugin might work, but in my case, I have many doctors. So it would seem that I would need to create a group for every doctor, and include the admin in each group. That might be more pain than it is worth.

Some additional information; the patient is signing in using a kiosk, which is represented as the sending Openfire account. Does anyone know of a way to bounce the message back to the sender in addition to sending the message to the recipient?

Thanks,

Chuck

Sounds like you want XEP-0033 Extended Stanza Addressing http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0033.html

IIRC it’s supported by Openfire.

Flow,

Thanks for the reply. You are correct that XEP-0033 is exactly what I need. I’m currently using a .NET library to talk to Openfire (http://www.ag-software.net/). Unfortunately, I’m using the free version (agsXMPP) rather than the paid version (MatriX XMPP). It appears that MatriX XMPP is required for support of XEP-0033 Extended Stanza Messaging. I will need to see if my client is willing to pay for the additional licensing.

Thanks,

Chuck
