=========

The RubyBOSH library handles creating and pre-authenticating BOSH streams inside your Ruby application before passing them off to your template engine. 

This method allows you to hide authentication details for your users' XMPP accounts.  

Tested on Rails 2.x with eJabberd 1.2+

References
==========
BOSH: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0124.html
XMPP via BOSH: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0206.html

Example
=======
In your Ruby app controller (or equivalent):

@session_jid, @session_id, @session_random_id = 
  RubyBOSH.initialize_session("me@jabber.org", "my_password", "http://localhost:5280/http-bind")

In your template, you would then pass these directly to your javascript BOSH connector:

var bosh_jid = '<%= @session_jid %>';
var bosh_sid = '<%= @session_id %>';
var bosh_rid = '<%= @session_random_id %>';

// using Strophe:
connect.attach(bosh_jid, bosh_sid, bosh_rid, onConnectHandlerFunction);
