Customizing OpenFire for Updating NewsFeed Android

Hi there,

I started learning OpenFire and XMPP, so I could implement it in my android app. My android app displays NewsFeed from a RESTFUL API (rate-limited). I would like to have a server that will download News updates and notify clients, instead of client apps polling the data themselves.

I have being learning OpenFire, I have setup and played around with the Smack Library. I need help customizing it to meet my needs. Any help, advice, guide will be so appreciated. Where do I look to, where do I look for tutorials. Anything. I am willing to learn. Do I really need to build a plugin by myself???

Thank you.
