Hello everyone,

I've recently joined Jive Software One of my
co-workers, Matt Tucker, has been working on an open source client library for
Java developers called Smack. Please check out where you'll find documentation,
forums, and the source code and binaries.

What we've done is start from scratch and rethink a Java client IM API with
simplicity and ease-of-use in mind. I think you'll all be quite pleased with
the result. The library uses the XPP pull parser rather than Xerces which
means the library is smaller, more reactive, and no one has to mess with that
Xerces workaround any more! smilie

You can think of Smack as the 2.0 version of the client code developed in the
book with an emphasis on making your life easier.

Please direct all support, comments, etc to the Smack forums on the Jive
