Class BuddyMessageRequest

      extended by sfs2x.client.requests.GenericMessageRequest
          extended by sfs2x.client.requests.buddylist.BuddyMessageRequest
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class BuddyMessageRequest
extends sfs2x.client.requests.GenericMessageRequest

Sends a message to a buddy in the current user's buddies list.

Messages sent to buddies using the BuddyMessageRequest request are similar to the standard private messages (see the PrivateMessageRequest request) but are specifically designed for the Buddy List system: they don't require any Room parameter, nor they require that users joined a Room. Additionally, buddy messages are subject to specific validation, such as making sure that the recipient is in the sender's buddies list and the sender is not blocked by the recipient.

If the operation is successful, a buddyMessage event is dispatched in both the sender and recipient clients.

NOTE: this request can be sent if the Buddy List system was previously initialized only (see the InitBuddyListRequest request description).

The following example sends a message to a buddy and handles the related event:

 private void someMethod() {
     sfs.addEventListener(SFSBuddyEvent.BUDDY_MESSAGE, new IEventListener() {
         public void dispatch(BaseEvent evt) throws SFSException {
             // As messages are forwarded to the sender too,
             // I have to check if I am the sender
             boolean isItMe = (Boolean)evt.getArguments().get("isItMe");
             Buddy sender = (Buddy)evt.getArguments().get("buddy");
             if (isItMe)
                 System.out.println("I said:" + evt.getArguments().get("message"));
                 System.out.println("My buddy " + sender.getName() + " said:" + evt.getArguments().get("message"));
     // Get the recipient of the message, in this case my buddy Jack
     Buddy buddy = sfs.getBuddyManager().getBuddyByName("Jack");
     // Send a message to Jack
     sfs.send(new BuddyMessageRequest("Hello Jack!", buddy));
