Smack is simply an API which you can use to help you develop Instant Message applications.

It sounds to me that you would be better off having a look at Spark. Jives very own Instant Message client.

Full details of which can be found here


You should download the smack-API and read the documetation and javadoc inside. That is very helpful to get a quick beginning. In them there are many simple but complete sample code you can learn.
