POE::Component::Jabber::XMPP - connect using the XMPP Jabber protocol
This is a Protocol implementation for the specifics in the XMPP protocol during connection initialization.
PCJ::XMPP provides all the mechanisms to negotiate TLS, SASL, resource binding, and session negotiation that PCJ needs to successfully establish an XMPP connection. In essence, it implements XMPP Core and a smidgeon of XMPP IM.
Please see PCJ::Protocol for what methods this class supports.
Listed are the exported events that make their way into the PCJ session: set_auth This handles the initial SASL authentication portion of the XMPP connection. init_input_handler This is our entry point. This is what PCJ uses to deliver events to us. build_tls_wheel If TLS is required by the server, this is where that negotiation process happens. challenge_response This handles the subsequent SASL authentication steps. binding This handles the resource binding session_establish This handles session binding.
NOTES AND BUGS
Currently, only DIGEST-MD5 and PLAIN SASL mechanisms are supported. Server implementations are free to include more strigent mechanisms, but these are the bare minimum required. (And PLAIN isn't /really/ allowed by the spec, but it is included because it was a requested feature) 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.
