Maybe this is not the right place to ask this. Ignore me if it is.
My company uses jabber as an internal IM.
I would like it if on a web-page, the presence state of the people mentioned on the page, is visible.
Currently there is an icon next to a person name, that when clicked, opens Jabber conversation with that person.
I would like to alter the icon, based on the presence state.
It's called a userscript.
I don't want to get involved in receiving or sending Jabber messages, they can use their client for that. I don't want the page to act upon presence status changes either.
So, I would like the page in the browser of someone using my script, to just collect the presence status of the people mentioned in the page.
I would not want to put my own user-name and password in the script to connect to the presence server, since the script is in clear text.
The page is coming from a web-server that knows/authenticates us, as we are part of the windows domain,
The PC also has a logged in Jabber client.
Is there a simple way to get just the presence of a number of people, at the time we load the page?
