Subject: Websockets
Hi Alex,

First : happy new year ! hope your business is going well, as we plan to count on you for the future ;)

I would like to know if the Matrix SDK does support the RFC 7395 (websockets extension)?
We wouldn't like to use MatriX JS as we are targeting heavy client with websockets (outside of browser)

Best regards,

Christophe

yes, we have a MatriX branch with Websockets. We just have not released it officially yet.
On which platform and .NET version are you?

Thanks for your fast response :)

We would like to target windows 7 and above. Client environment is not under our control. I would say that .NET 3.5 & .NET 4 could be the response. We could manage to have multiple versions

For the server side, Openfire with websockets plug-in is what we plan to do. We still need to POC all this.
Did you get some feedback about bad experience for websockets with Openfire server ? This information could be useful to us before we start.

Our implementation is based on System.Net.WebSockets, which is only available since .NET 4.5. So 4.5 would be the minimum requirement.

Websockets is an official standard, so I see no reason why it should not work with Openfire. However we have done most of our testing with Prosody and ejabberd, because in Openfire Websockets were not available at the time we started to work on this task.

When you use the pre-release builds 2.1.0-beta1 you can use websockets.

sample:
  1. xmppClient.Transport = Matrix.Net.Transport.WebSocket;
  2. xmppClient.Uri = new Uri("ws://localhost:5280/xmpp-websocket");
