you can create user using AccountManager class.

Ex (this code based on smack4.1):

after creating the XMPP connection

AccountManager accountManager = AccountManager.getInstance(mConnection);

Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();

map.put(“username”, usr);

map.put(“name”, usr);

map.put(“password”, pwd);

map.put(“email”, eml);

accountManager.createAccount(usr, pwd, map);

While creating of new user using android client, i am using your code i am getting error at AccountManager.getInstance(conncetion).

Error is “The method getInstance(XMPPConnection) is undefined for the type AccountManager”

and i am using same smack4.1 jar file .

appreciate for your reply

I’ve solved this issue in this way:
add the library “smack-extensions-4.1.1.jar” and “smack-im-4.1.1.jar” (i dont know which of the two is the one that you need).
Import this class on your class: import org.jivesoftware.smackx.iqregister.AccountManager;

This error came because you had import “android.accounts.AccountManager” instead the smack one.
