Class SnacFamilyInfoFactory

  extended bySnacFamilyInfoFactory

public final class SnacFamilyInfoFactory
extends java.lang.Object

Provides a means of generating a list of SnacFamilyInfo values that are compatible with the default implementations of SnacCommands in joscar. Note that this only provides a default set of SnacFamilyInfos and you are free to send whatever list of SnacFamilyInfos you please in ClientVersionsCmds and ClientReadyCmds; however, with different SNAC family versions often comes changes to the protocol, changes that the default SnacCommand implementations provided by joscar may not be able to handle.

Method Detail


public static SnacFamilyInfo[] getDefaultFamilyInfos(int[] supportedFamilies)
Returns a list of SNAC family version information objects given a list of supported families. See above for details. For each SNAC family code in the given list of supported families which is also supported by joscar, a single SnacFamilyInfo is returned, in the order that the supported family list was given.

A typical use of this method would be as follows:
void handleServerReadyCmd(ServerReadyCmd serverReadyCmd) {
    int[] families = serverReadyCmd.getSnacFamilies();
    SnacFamilyInfo[] familyInfos = SnacFamilyInfoFactory.getDefaultFamilyInfos(
    ClientVersionsCmd out = new ClientVersionsCmd(familyInfos);
     // ... send command ...

supportedFamilies - a list of supported families for which family information objects should be returned
a list of SNAC family info objects corresponding to supported SNAC families in the given list of families
