Forum OpenACS Development: UI for jabber admin page
is better to allow to add (or remove)a buddy one by one or to offer an
option where you can say how many buddies you want to add (or remove)
and then build a page with multiple textfields based on the number you
wrote in the form, so the admin doesn't need to reload the page again
Or simply put up a textarea, where every line contains an item. If you need structured information per item then let them enter the name only first and present them with a table with input fields after submitting the textarea, with one row for each name that the user entered.
there is no way you can participate in Jabber without having a client. In our modell you will have two options.
One is to use the Java Applet that resides on the AOLserver and allows you to participate in discussions with your friends, regardless where they are logged in.
The other one is something we need to explore using Java Webstart and / or links to Winjab / Gabber or even aol:// style links.
But this is a seperate issue from the UI and you will have plenty of time exploring this and other options of the Jabber Module for OpenACS once it is done 😊.
What does the Jabber Module for OpenACS do?
Even better would be to be presented with the class list with check boxes so I could check/uncheck the people I want on my list.
How close are you guys to getting a working module? Is there a demo anywhere?
A number of schools have been deploying Jabber across their unis, including Azusa Pacific University and the Open University. In fact, the Open University has written a pretty cool Jabber client called BuddySpace.
