Net::XMPP2::Ext - Extension baseclass and documentation
This module has documentation about the supported extensions and also is a base
class for all extensions that can be added via the "add_extension"
method of the classes that derive from Net::XMPP2::Extendable. (That are:
Net::XMPP2::Client, Net::XMPP2::Connection and Net::XMPP2::IM::Connection)
Basically "add_extension" makes the extension an event receiver for
all events that the extended object receives.
This is the list of supported XMPP extensions:
- XEP-0004 - Data Forms (Version 2.8)
- This extension handles data forms as described in XEP-0004.
Net::XMPP2::Ext::DataForm allows you to construct, receive and answer data
forms. This is neccessary for all sorts of things in XMPP. For example
XEP-0055 (Jabber Search) or also In-band registration.
- XEP-0030 - Service Discovery (Version 2.3)
- This extension allows you to send service discovery requests and define a
set of discoverable information. See also Net::XMPP2::Ext::Disco.
- XEP-0054 - vcard-temp (Version 1.1)
- This extension allows the retrieval and storage of XMPP vcards as defined
in XEP-0054. It is implemented by Net::XMPP2::Ext::VCard.
- XEP-0066 - Out of Band Data (Version 1.5)
- This extension allows to receive and send out of band data URLs and
provides helperfunctions to handle jabber:x:oob data. See also
- XEP-0077 - In-Band Registration (Version 2.2)
- This extension lets you register new accounts "in-band". For
details please take a look at Net::XMPP2::Ext::Registration.
- XEP-0078 - Non-SASL Authentication (Version 2.3)
- After lots of sweat and curses I implemented finally iq auth.
Unfortunately the XEP-0078 specifies things that are not implemented, in
fact the only server that worked was openfire and psyced.org.
So I de-analized the iq auth and now it just barfs the IQ set out on the
stream with the username and the password.
If you insist on XEP-0078 behaviour enable the "anal_iq_auth"
option when creating the stream.
You can also completly disable iq auth, well, just see the documentation of
- XEP-0082 - XMPP Date and Time Profiles (Version 1.0)
- Implemented some functions to deal with XMPP timestamps, see
Net::XMPP2::Util "to_xmpp_time", "to_xmpp_datetime",
They are meant as simple formatters for you, you will still need to handle
timezone stuff and such yourself.
- XEP-0086 - Error Condition Mappings (Version 1.0)
"A mapping to enable legacy entities to correctly handle errors from XMPP-aware entities."
This extension will enable sending of the old error codes when generating a
stanza error with for example the "write_error_tag" method of
Also if only the old numeric codes are supplied the
Net::XMPP2::Error::Stanza class tries to map the numeric codes to the new
error conditions if possible.
- XEP-0091 - Delayed Delivery (Version 1.3)
- See also XEP-0203 below.
- XEP-0092 - Software Version (Version 1.1)
- The ability to answer to software version, name and operating system
requests and being able to send such requests is implemented in
- XEP-0114 - Jabber Component Protocol (Version 1.5)
- This extension allows you to connect to a server as a component and makes
it possible to implement services like pubsub, muc, or whatever you can
imagine (even gateways). See documentation of Net::XMPP2::Component and
the example "samples/simple_component".
- XEP-0153 - vCard-Based Avatars (Version 1.0)
- This extension allows to store and retrive avatars from vcards. On top of
that it will also signal others that you support avatars and that they
might have changed. See Net::XMPP2::Ext::VCard.
- XEP-0199 - XMPP Ping (Version 1.0)
- You can send ping requests to other entities and also are able to reply to
them. On top of that the Net::XMPP2::Ext::Ping extension implements a
connection timeout mechanism based on this.
- XEP-0203 - Delayed Delivery (Version 1.0)
- Both delayed delivery XEPs are supported and are implemented by
Net::XMPP2::IM::Delayed which is a super class of Net::XMPP2::IM::Message
If you need to fetch delay from stanzas you caught yourself in an event you
can use a Net::XMPP2::IM::Delayed object to parse/fetch the delay out of
Use the functions described above in the XEP-0082 item to decode the
timestamps of delays.
