Integrate Smack into GWT application

Hi all,

i am trying to integrate the Smack library into a GWT project but the library is not designed to be integrated with GWT…

are there other solutions to fix this problem??


Have you tried emite? Its a pure GWT XMPP library.


I’m having the same trouble. That lead me to emite, but the documentation has so many holes I got stuck and I’m back trying to integrate Smack into GWT.

Try this: http://www.vogella.de/articles/GWT/ar01s07.html

This seems to be the most coherent instruction on including external JARs.

Thank you for the answer…

Could i use emite to interact with google talk?


Hi ledzgio,

If you are going to host your GWT application on the Google App Engine, use googles XMPP api (http://code.google.com/intl/en/appengine/docs/java/xmpp/overview.html). It will definitely support interaction with Google talk. As for emite, I have not tried to connect to the Google talk service but I’m sure it can be done.
