Class ChatRoom

A ChatRoom is a chat construct where users must be connected and present to receive messages. A chat room does not have members beyond who is in the chat room at any given time. Presence in a chat room is determined by session. If a particular session is not connected and currently in a given room, then messages published to that room will not be delivered to that session.

If your session is disconnected while joined to a ChatRoom, you will automatically rejoin when connectivity is restored.
