JAXL library – List of available hooks for various XMPP events

Jaxl 2.x provides an event mechanism using which developers can register callbacks for various xmpp events inside their application code. This blog post will demonstrate how to register callbacks for required xmpp events and go through a list of all available hooks. Finally, we will discuss parameters that are passed to called back methods by Jaxl core.

How to write External Jabber Components in PHP using Jaxl library?

Jabber Component Protocol (XEP-0114) documents how XMPP protocol can be used to communicate between servers and “external” components over the Jabber network. XMPP components “bind” to a domain, usually a sub-domain of the main XMPP service, such as service.example.org.
All incoming stanzas addressed to that domain (to=’service.example.org’) or to entities on that domain (to=’[email protected]’) will be routed to your Jaxl (Jabber XMPP Library) based code. In this blog post, I will demonstrate a sample external jabber component bot written in PHP using Jaxl library.

PHP Code, Setup and Demo of Jaxl boshchat application

Jaxl 2.0 bosh support allow web developers to write real time web applications within minutes, without having any pre-requisite knowledge about the XMPP protocol itself. In this blog post, I will walk you through setup and demo of an XMPP based web chat application using Jaxl library.

Facebook chat connect with X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM using Jaxl 2.0

Facebook chat provides two authentication mechanisms for authenticating chat client users. DIGEST-MD5 require chat client users to enter their username and password, while X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM can be used to provide better user experience by using simple Facebook Platform authentication. In this blog post, I will demonstrate how to use Jaxl library for X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM authentication.

Jaxl 2.0 Core classes, available methods and directory structure

In this blog post we will dig deep into the core of Jaxl 2.0 – An XMPP framework written in PHP. Specifically, we will go through Jaxl core directory structure. Towards the end we will get familiar with various core classes and their available methods (e.g. $jaxl->sendMessage()), that developers can use in their XMPP applications.

Writing a command line XMPP bot (echobot) using Jaxl 2.0

In this blog post, we will write a sample XMPP bot (echobot) using Jaxl 2.0. In turn we will introduce ourselves to some of the basic functionality we can do using Jaxl e.g. fetching roster list, subscribing and unsubscribing to a user presence, etc. We will also focus on how to use XMPP extensions (XEP’s) inside our echobot code. Specifically, we will make use of XEP-0085 (chat state notification), XEP-0203 (delayed delivery) and XEP-0092 (software version) in our sample echobot application.
