This is a wonderful book to get things done via XMPP (and I also have definitive guide). I started my first programming language 5 months ago and am a newbie. But I want to dive into the world of XMPP.
My limitations become apparent in Ch 3. I've spent few days on it, to no avail. I may need to stop reading unless I receive some helps.
As for now, here are the few issues:
is temp. out of service. What to do from here? I prefer to use ejabberd but anything will also do.
2. page 42. last 2 lines said "through out this book, it is assumed that strophe.js
file, as well as any Strophe plug-in files are placed under the scripts directory. I am not sure what it means. (probably I need to study something else before I continue this book from here, what books/resources/directions can you recommend?)
3. similarly, page 43 "once you've downloaded flXHR and uncompressed it, you can place the contents of the flensed-1.0/deploy directory into the scripts directory inside your application's directory." What does it mean?
4. a walk through guide in youtube by using window for chapter 3 would be helpful. The video for ejabberd is great!
5. page 53 " once you have a web server running or have uploaded your code to your favorite web host, you can point your browser to the URL for hello.html on that server and try to log in." I don't get it. walk through video for this will be great.
I understand most things you said there and they are clear and concise. But I feel the book has implicitly abstracted some essential info for a newbie like me and the issue can easily be dealt with. The target audience can be much broader if this issue is addressed.
