Hello Everyone,

I am new to the abber but I was so excited when I found the Smack API(s). They are very easy to use so building a client is pretty easy.

The portion I do not understand is the server. If I wanted my client to be able to pull stored information out of a database(on the server side), is the Jabber Server something I would be be trying to modify?? If so, is there a good open souce java jabber server out there??

Are you looking to do some customized server side work or are you just trying to connect to a standard Jabber/XMPP server? If it’‘s the latter and you want to use a server that’‘s very easy to setup and use take a look at Jive Messenger (http://jivesoftware.com/products/messenger/). If it’‘s the former there are a number of open source server solutions out there. A good place to get more info, regardless of what you’'re trying to do is http://jabber.org
