<section1 topic='Introduction'>
<p>Generic Alerts is a way to extend headlines to allow functionality similar to .NET Alerts.</p>
</section1>
<section1 topic='Requirements'>
<p>The motivations for this document are:</p>
<ul>
<li>To allow services to send alerts to users, e.g. like an auction notifying you when you are outbid or that you have won</li>
</ul>
</section1>
<section1 topic='Use Cases'>
<section2 topic='Generic Alert message'>
<p>Generic Alerts extend headline messages to specify such things as a logo (32x32 png) and url to goto when the alert is clicked:</p>
<example caption='Generic alert message'><![CDATA[
<message to='user@domain.com' from='domain.com' type='headline' id='alert1'>
<subject>Auction Alert</subject>
<body>You have been outbid!</body>
<alert xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/alert'>
<logo>http://www.auction.com/alert.png</logo>
<url>http://www.auction.com/item?1292192</url>
</alert>
</message>]]></example>
</section2>
</section1>
<section1 topic='Implementation Notes'>
<p>The following guidelines may assist client developers.</p>
<ul>
<li>The existance of an alert element of the namespace 'http://jabber.org/protocol/alert' means this is an alert and not a normal headline.</li>
<li>Alerts should be displayed differently, possibly in toast popups.</li>
<li>The logo is an optional graphic to display representing the service being alerted on, e.g. ebay logo.</li>
<li>When clicked on the users web browser will be opened to the specified url.</li>
</ul>
</section1>
<section1 topic='Security Considerations'>
<p>None.</p>
</section1>
<section1 topic='IANA Considerations'>
<p>No IANA interaction required.</p>
</section1>
<section1 topic='XMPP Registrar Considerations'>
<p>The &REGISTRAR; will need to register the new namespace of "http://jabber.org/protocol/alert".</p>
