Smack API to connect to IRC through XMPP server

I am new to XMPP and have found Smack to be very helpful and easy to use. I’'m having trouble, though, figuring out if there is any way to connect up to an IRC chat room through and XMPP server using the Smack API…assuming that the XMPP server is configured to use something like mod_irc and is properly configured.

If so, could someone give me a brief example of what the code would look like to get me started in the right direction?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

It’'s not pure XMPP, but if you find a Jabber server that runs an IRC transport (jabber.unixfreunde.net is one), then you can do it.

Check out this post (it talks about MSN or ICQ, but the process is the same:
