Follow-up: So, this means, for example, I could
theoretically be logged in from both ‘‘home’’ and
(currently, when I log in from home,
I boot off my work presence, I guess I have set the
same ‘‘resource’’ for both).
You are correct. Users cannot log in again using the same resource. The server will close one of the connections. Most probably the old one.
If so, do I show up as
two separate users in people’'s buddy list
(environment being a company)?
This really depends on the client that people are using. I think that most of the clients will show only one entry and when you click on the contact then they will see that the contact is logged from many places. Usually clients let the user choose which contact connection is going to get the message.
Or, if single
listing, if someone jabbers me, does that message go
to both (home and work) clients?
Nope. The server will select (using some kind of algorithm) the connection that is going to get the message. The presence priority is usually involved in the selection logic.
