[sip-comm] AIM is not ICQ


#1

I noticed over the past few nightlies that on startup, I have a new
account for ICQ and a prompt to login to it using my AIM username. I
poked around AIM and ICQ websites and find that while the two can talk
to one another, the accounts are not merged into one (that I can tell).

It seems that since nightly build 2411 or so, the AIM and ICQ account
properties are merged or overwriting one another. If I delete the
erroneous ICQ account in "Accounts", on restart, it comes back.

Anyone else experiencing this? Yes, I'll open a bug, but want to make
sure it's not something I've done at first.

Well FWIW, they are not merged but they do use the same protocol. ICQ
accounts can talk to AIM ones and can even log via the AIM service. In
the case of SIP Communicator we use the same protocol stack to connect
to both services, although AIM and ICQ accounts are configured
differently. That's for the record.

It seems that since nightly build 2411 or so, the AIM and ICQ account
properties are merged or overwriting one another. If I delete the

Weird! Especially the resurrection part, and even more so given that we
haven't touched that part of the code for months now.. So, yes could you
please open an issue? Sending a log file here could help too.

Thanks,
Emil

Since build 2668, this problem has returned. My AIM account is
labelled as ICQ and is attempted to login using ICQ credentials, which
are rejected. SIPComm tells me aim.com is rejecting my login due to too
many frequent attempts to do so. However, I can login to my actual AIM
account using pidgin just fine. This appears to be something with
SIPComm.

SIPComm accounts shows my AIM username with (ICQ) next to it. If I
delete the account via the gui, sip-communicator.properties is updated
to remove all ICQ properties, starting with
"net.java.sip.communicator.impl.protocol.icq."

When I walk through the gui to add a new account, a diff of the
sip-communicator.properties files shows the new account is setup as an
icq account, with
"net.java.sip.communicator.impl.protocol.icq.acc1274810532875.IS_AIM=true"

The Accounts tab in the gui shows "nickname (AIM)" whereas before it
shows "nickname (ICQ)". I can login when the gui shows "nickname (AIM)"
but not when it thinks this is an ICQ account.

I realize the underlying protocol may be the same, but obviously aim.com
doesn't think so.
