XMPP

Hi all,

I just started with reading through all the material regarding SAP Netweaver Cloud, but didn't find any statements regarding the usage of other protocols than HTTP(s) in cloud applications. Is it possible at all? Can you open specific ports for the application VM? In our special case we want to use XMPP.

Kind regards,

Sven

    Hi Sven,

    at the moment the only open ports are the standard HTTP(S) ports: 80 and 443 and we do not provide means to open specific ports for individual applications/VMs. We are however discussing this internally as we do see the need for more flexibility in this regards e.g. mobile push scenarios and use-cases like yours.

    Best regards,

    Matthias

    Hi Sven,

    did you try to use a xmpp library which supports the streaming over HTTP? (bosh)

    http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0124.html

    I think smack is such a library which does supports this extension.

    With this you should as well be able to bypass corporate proxies.

      Hi Harald,

      yes, I actually tried this today and it should work. The problem with SMACK is, that it supports BOSH only by means of a two-year-old branch which was never integrated into the trunk. Nevertheless, thanks for your answer!

      Kind regards,

      Sven
