Re: [ecf-dev] IPresenceContainer & chat room

Hi Tim,

xmpp is the main one so far for IM and chat, although there are also providers based upon yahoo im and one based upon sametime protocol...implemented by Chris Aniszcyk.

We haven't yet gotten approval for distributing the yahoo provider (or the sametime provider) via eclipse.org yet, however, so that's why it's not in the set available in the normal location. We can make it available to you, however, if you would like to work with it (not under EPL, though).

The org.eclipse.ecf.presence chat room support needs a little generalization to support the Yahoo chat protocol, because Yahoo's chat rooms are hierarchically organized and currently the org.eclipse.ecf.presence api doesn't have hierarchical relationships between chat groups. See this bug for more info about this: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=122692. We would welcome some contributions for API and impls on this if people are interested.

need an IPresenceContainer to begin with. For which providers are
IPresenceContainers implemented? I can only find an IPresenceContainer
for the xmpp provider. Is that the only one who has been implemented
