Subject: Get my name from the server
Hi,

I am using OpenFire for server purposes for my client application. The User Summary lists users with status, username, name, created, etc...

Is there a way to fetch the name component from my client application? I.e. if I have a user with username "testuser" with the name "I am a testuser", is there a way to get the name "I am a testuser" from the server?

My purpose for this is that I have a closed group of user accounts (I control the registration of accounts) and I want to give these descriptive names and display these names to the users when they log on.

This name should be in the vCard if the user has put it there.
If its not in the vCard then there is no other way to retrieve it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have found the code in the miniclient for the retrieval of the vcard now.
