Iksemel and gloox

I’'m interested in making a Wildfire client using C++ on Windows, and the only option I found was the iksemel C-library and the gloox C++ wrapper.

However when trying to download iksemel from jabberstudio, version 1.2 is not available. Gloox is available at http://www.camaya.net/gloox, as are the necessary libraries.

Does anyone know if iksemel is available somewhere else, if it is a robust library and/or if there are any alternatives for Windows?

Thanks

Peter

Hi Peter,

I’'m not familiar with iksemel/glooz but there are quite a number of other C++ libraries available:

Hope that helps,

Hello,

Thanks for your suggestion, but I have seen this list and most (if not all) are not for the Windows environment. They need serious porting if at all possible.

iksemel/gloox seems to be the only one for Windows, and was also a touch cookie to compile/link. I’'m not sure about how reliable/bugfree it is either.

Isn’'t anyone developing for Windows using C++ anymore? Has it really gone that far?

Anyway, regarding the jabberstudio problem, I realized I could click on the diskette-icon to download iksemel. Clicking the name got me to the ‘‘file not found’’ problem.

Thanks for helping out

No, but Windows developer tend to not share their code for others to use.

I’‘ve used iksemel on Mac OS X, works pretty well, but there’'s no abstraction of anything. The positive point of that is that you can use it for every thinkable extension.
