Interface ServerIdentitiesProvider

  • All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface ServerIdentitiesProvider

    A ServerIdentitiesProvider is responsible for providing the identities of protocols supported by the SERVER. An example of a server identity is that for PEP (XEP-0163): <identity category="pubsub" type="pep" />

    When the server starts up, IQDiscoInfoHandler will request to all the services that implement the ServerIdentitiesProvider interface for their identities. Whenever a disco request is received IQDiscoInfoHandler will add to the provided information all the collected identities. Therefore, a service must implement this interface in order to offer/publish its identities as part of the server identities.

        Iterator<org.dom4j.Element> getIdentities()
        Returns an Iterator (of Element) with the supported identities by the server. The identities to include are the identities of protocols supported by the SERVER. The idea is that different modules may provide their identities that will ultimately be included in the list of server identities.
