Have any of you guys read the XMPP RFC? Just curious about your level of expertise with XMPP.

I've read the most important chapters in the XMPP book - and MD5 digest is the standard way of authenticating - but it's being deprecated.

It's quite interesting. Great work guys. But I would only use whatsapp if I can register and use it with a false phone number. I won't ever give my phone number to whatsapp inc. His privacy politics are unacceptable for me.

I have read just last 5 pages, and hope not to make an answered question... Do you think would it be possible to register with for example 000 000 000 number (or wichever not existing mobile number in my country) and never give my real number to whatsapp inc?

I meant whatsapp for maemo users?

Some info for you guys doing the dev work - while reading the book one thing was bugging me from the very first chapter and it didn't cover it until it was near the end.

That was power management - since the XMPP is a long lived TCP session which pretty much never expires it's just going to kill the battery, but clearly it doesn’t otherwise it would not have been used.

This power management feature is achieved by something called BOSH, this is where instead of the client keeping the TCP session alive a proxy sits between the client and the server the BOSH Connection Manager (BOSH CM) server keeps the session alive. The client then communicates with the BOSH CM by simple HTTP requests. The client is assigned a session id for this by the BOSH CM.

I’m guessing you guys may have seen something similar – if not it may help you debug some of this stuff.

You can go and install google talk, skype and Extraplugins for Accounts UI

I think WhatsApp do not use the standard protocol. I went through their code both java and .net, I noticed that they send XML data through the output stream in binary. I am not sure if I can send and receive data in ASCII.

Hello Tarek
Well done, What you have done is really great.
Can you please share the login code with me
Are you communicating to their xmpp server using normal XML or using binary data?
