===========

Jabsimul with SASL Integration is a benchmarking tool for Jabber/XMPP Servers which have SASL authentication.
It also has the support for *starttls*.

Special Note:
---------------------

The SASL and starttls implementation is mine. Other than this project is not mine.

Implementation:
-------------------------

I have implemented the protocol named XEP-0034: SASL Integration.

Extra Feature:
-----------------------

Other then jabsimul benchmark feature it has the extra feature of XMPP SASL authentication. I have enabled the SASL plain mechanism of authentication for xmpp login.

With that now you can have the benchmark of jabsimul with SASL authentication.


As list:

1. Implemented “XMPP TLS” from http://xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc3920.html
2. Implemented “SASL AUTH” from  http://xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc3920.html

Source code is available in here .


Procedure:
-----------------

First start a TCP connection to the XMPP server. Then convert this TCP connection to TLS with *starttls* schema request.
Then select the *SASL* auth mechanism and start the the XMPP communication with TLS. The TLS connection holds when the SASL mechanism complete a successful handshake.

Implementation details are available [here](https://developers.google.com/cloud-print/docs/rawxmpp)

How To's:
--------

cd jabsimul/jab_simul/
vi jab_simul.xml


Change *<server>jabber.localhost</server>* to your XMPP server address. Fill the xml file with you necessary configuration.

Compile it:

./configure
make

Now you can execute it:

./jab_simul
