I’'m very new to Smack. Actually I just downloaded it a few minutes ago.
I have a question about Smack. I know that the Jabber protocol can connect to other IM-systems using the provider-architecture. While reading the javadoc I didn’'t found very many things about the providers. Is the API already built for the providers?
Is it very difficult to build your own provider?
And one thing I didn’'t find out by reading the documents about Jabber. Is it possible to send a message to a offline user? Just like the way it is possible with ICQ?
I want to build my own IM-client, so I will be here for a while.
