jabber:iq:private Namespace

2.1 Description

A Jabber client can store any arbitrary XML on the server side by
sending an <iq/> stanza of type "set" to the server with a <query/>
child scoped by the 'jabber:iq:private' namespace. The <query/>
element MAY contain any arbitrary XML fragment as long as the root
element of that fragment is scoped by its own namespace. The data can
then be retrieved by sending an <iq/> stanza of type "get" with a
<query/> child scoped by the 'jabber:iq:private' namespace, which in
turn contains a child element scoped by the namespace used for storage
of that fragment. Using this method, Jabber entities can store private
data on the server and retrieve it whenever necessary. The data stored
might be anything, as long as it is valid XML. One typical usage for
this namespace is the server-side storage of client-specific
preferences; another is Bookmark Storage [1].
