I am trying to use SMACK as a client application to a simple XMPP server I have written. I all care about in the server is doing TLS and SASL negotiations. After that I am simply listening for a XMPP stanza which we are using for system configuration. My server does NOT do binding or any other features. Is there a way to set up a XMPPConnection so that it will not wait to recieve a binding tag? This is where my connection get severed.
