[jitsi-dev] [jitsi] Inconsistent naming (XMPP/Jabber) (#89)


#1

Jitsi uses the terms XMPP and Jabber interchangeably. Users are forced to learn and understand two terms instead of one. Jitsi should stick to one name for the protocol throughout the user interface. XMPP is the preferred name for the protocol and should replace any remaining references to Jabber.

"Currently the protocol name is still jabber (the one in net.java.sip.communicator.service.protocol.ProtocolNames) and we cannot just change it cause everybody may lose their created accounts." And this protocol name is used in Account display name, and we need to find a way to show it with updated value like xmpp. And this is not an easy task, we have a ProtocolDisplayName in AccountID but this one is used for other purposes, like using the xmpp protocol as a base for other protocols, this currently is used for protocols like Google Talk and Facebook. We just need to find a way to display localized string in account display in the gui, like we do for the JabberAccountRegistrationWizard using the string plugin.jabberaccregwizz.PROTOCOL_NAME. "

It's not obvious to me, but if you have a jabber.com account or a google talk account (which is also jabber) and the other party has a jit.si xmpp account, is it possible to communicate with the other party or must both parties be on the same network? I tried to add someone with a jabber.com account and I have a jit.si account and I was not able to communicate with them.

@mgrant0 your question is about federation of XMPP services. Please use our mailing list (users@jitsi.org) for such questions. It has nothing to do with this issue.
