Using Jabber-net to talk to OpenFire

After Installing Ignite’s OpenFire and Spark (IM server and client),  using Jabber-Net, I wrote a O2 Platform C# script to access OpenFire, which will:
  • Connect to a local OpenFire server
  • Login as a user
  • Find the HuBot room
  • Join that room
  • Post public messages to it
(see end of post for the source code)

The script can be compiled as a stand-alone exe:

....which when executed will show a list of current messages

image

... from the HuBot chat room:

To see the interaction between both tools, we can write a message on the Spark client (on the bottom-left):

image

... which shows in the Jabber Test tool

image

... and a message from the Jabber Test tool (on the top-right)

image

... will show in Spark

Troubleshoot: If you try this script and get a pink treeview, it means the connection or login failed:
