	I am not able to send mails to JDEV for a while. I don't know
whether this reaches
the list or not. Please don't mind the delay that has been caused and kindly
reply to
my query.

	Yeah, that's exactly what i want. Given the name of the user, i must
be able
to find out whether he is online or not. And then the actual number of users

online in the whole server. If it's not maintained by the
user.xml file, please do tell me where to find that information and how to
access it.

State is not kept in the user.xml file, it's maintained in the Jabber
session manager. Do you want to be able to see the state of any random
user? And are you interested in getting this information for users on a
server that you run (i.e., you are the server admin) or for any old
