Hello Team,

I am using smack version 4.2.4 for android for developing muc group. While doing so, I am having issue of two issues.

  1. Unable to create persistence muc room
org.jivesoftware.smack.XMPPException$XMPPErrorException: XMPP error reply received from ggypnsdaqhibyzsu_neurrnqbltsz2tbz_h6ixcttjskcexmky@conference.vbridgesocial.com:XMPPError: bad-request - modify

at org.jivesoftware.smackx.muc.MultiUserChat.getConfigurationForm(MultiUserChat.java:802)
  1. Timeout Exception while joining muc room.

No response received within reply timeout. Timeout was 10000ms (~10s). Waited for response using: AndFilter: (StanzaTypeFilter: Presence, OrFilter: (AndFilter: (FromMatchesFilter (ignoreResourcepart): 97_9@conference.vbridgesocial.com, MUCUserStatusCodeFilter: status=110), AndFilter: (FromMatchesFilter (full): 97_9@conference.vbridgesocial.com/135, StanzaIdFilter: id=P98q9-46, PresenceTypeFilter: type=error))).

Snippets for create and join chat :

private synchronized MultiUserChat getMultiUserChatConfig(final String room_jid,
                                                              final String room_desc, final boolean shouldConfig) {
        try {

           final MultiUserChat muc = getMultiUserChatManager()
            esourcepart mResourcepart = Resourcepart.from(nickName);

            if (shouldConfig) {
                setConfig(muc, room_desc);

            MucEnterConfiguration.Builder builder = muc.getEnterConfigurationBuilder(mResourcepart);
            Presence subscribe = new Presence(Type.available);

            String roomId = room_jid;
            if (roomId != null && roomId.contains("@")) {
                String replaceService = "@" + SERVICE_MUC;
                roomId = roomId.replace(replaceService, "");

            Contacts contact = AppDatabase.getInstance().getAppDao().getContact(roomId);
            long totalMessage = AppDatabase.getInstance().getAppDao().getTotalMessageFromThis(roomId);

            if (contact != null && totalMessage != 0) {
                int sec = (int) ((TimeUtils.getTimeInMillis() - contact.getLatestMessageDateMillis())
                        / 1000l) - 1;

            MucEnterConfiguration mucEnterConfiguration = builder.build();


            if (shouldConfig) {
                setConfig(muc, room_desc);

            if (mucMessageListener != null) {

            return muc;
        } catch (Exception e) {
            isAllGroupJoined = false;

            if (mGroupCreateCallBack != null) {

        return null;

    private void setConfig(MultiUserChat multiUserChat, String room_desc) {
        try {
            Form form = multiUserChat.getConfigurationForm();
            Form submitForm = form.createAnswerForm();
            submitForm.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_roomdesc", room_desc);
            submitForm.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_roomname", room_desc);
            submitForm.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_publicroom", true);
            submitForm.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_persistentroom", true);
            submitForm.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_membersonly", true);
        } catch (Exception e) {

Please guide me where I am lacking.
Thanks in advance.
