Smack api for xmpp client on blackberry?

Hi all,

I’m looking to learn hands-on by developing a xmpp client for the blackberry using smack . I haven’t attempted yet, but would like to know if it is already known how to get this working. Ideally, I would like to develop this xmpp client once and deploy it to both a blackberry and android with minimum modification–but blackberry first if i have to choose. Any insight on the subject is much appreciated! Thanks!

Hi mae$tro,

The BlackBerry supports the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME), so the smack api won’t work on it. Try Googling for “j2me xmpp” and you’ll find some other libraries that you can experiment with. As for the android platform, you can use it’s somewhat limited IMProvider api (which actually uses smack under the covers) or you can access the smack api directly.

Good luck,


Thanks Ryan!
