[jdev] Issues in XMPP javascript libraries

This is slightly OT but wouldn't a compatibility matrix be nice?

E.g. Rohan comes in and sees that XMPP4JS and JSJac don't seem to be working with GTalk and j.o, he reports it and the compatibility matrix is updated. This way 'end-user developers' would be able to see which libraries work where (and which ones are working nearly everywhere) and 'library developers' would get good feedback about their libraries (and would be encouraged to keep the compatibility high).

Maybe your client library doesn't support X-AUTH-GOOGTOKEN (a google extension to XMPP). Try another server... I am not even entirely sure if GTalk does support the actual XEP, it might be a home-grown implementation (still BOSH, but not as per the XEP).

Hi Jonathan,



i got this msg when i tried connecting to gmail.com<http://gmail.com/>. I believe gmail is BOSH capable server. Or is it not?

Hi Rohan,



I don't think you will need to troubleshoot anything if you connect to a BOSH capable server. Try that first and see if you have any luck...

Hi Jonathan,

                 Thanks a lot for your reply. You have cleared my confusion. Coming back to my first question, can anyone who has used XMPP4JS or JSJac know how to troubleshoot the issue.

Hi Rohan,



BOSH is what Javascript libraries would use to communicate with a XMPP server (remember, Javascript cannot send raw data over the network, all comms must occur over HTTP).



What this means to you is that:

1.       No client set up is needed. The javascript libraries (should) include everything you need. They simply use a special kind of AJAX to communicate with the server.

2.       You need to find a server that supports BOSH connections. Maybe someone here is running one that does? You can try to connect to jabber.org<http://jabber.org/> and mabber or such should also have BOSH support.



Best of luck!

Hi All,

         I am new to the XMPP world, and have just started to learn it. I want to build a small web client that connects to xmpp servers, and allows the user to chat. For this I tried using both XMPP4JS and JSJac. In the sample client provided by both of these libraries I am getting exceptions.In JSJac, am getting-

An error occured:
Code: 503
Type: cancel
Condition: service-unavailable



And in XMPP4JS, i am getting the error-

There was an error(fatal=true): The error is not one of those defined herein; the connection manager SHOULD include application-specific information in the content of the wrapper.



What else do I need to configure. I am running the sample client under Apache. Also what exactly is BOSH, and what needs to be setup at client side to configure BOSH
