NAME ^

POE::Component::Jabber::Legacy

SYNOPSIS ^

PCJ::Legacy is a Protocol implementation for the legacy (ie. Pre-XMPP) Jabber protocol.

DESCRIPTION ^

PCJ::Legacy implements the simple iq:auth authentication mechanism defined in the deprecated XEP at http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0078.html. This Protocol class is mainly used for connecting to legacy jabber servers that do not conform the to XMPP1.0 RFC.

METHODS ^

Please see PCJ::Protocol for what methods this class supports.

EVENTS ^

Listed below are the exported events that end up in PCJ's main session:

set_auth

This handles construction and sending of the iq:auth query.

init_input_handler

This is our main entry point. This is used by PCJ to deliver all input events until we are finished. Also handles responses to authentication.

NOTES AND BUGS ^

Ideally, this class wouldn't be necessary, but there is a large unmoving mass of entrenched users and administrators that refuse to migrate to XMPP. It largely doesn't help that debian still ships jabberd 1.4.3 which does NOT support XMPP.

The underlying backend has changed this release to now use a new Node implementation based on XML::LibXML::Element. Please see POE::Filter::XML::Node documentation for the relevant API changes.
