Smack Client

Anyone working on a good open source java client utilizing the Smack API? I don’'t see anything listed at http://www.jabberstudio.org/project/. The java community seems to be way behind in quality of Jabber clients.

I am interested in a real java client on par with say Exodus, but of course not in Delphi. Will Jive be building a client to go along with the Jive Messenger server product? The Messenger page currently lists Exodus and Psi as compatible clients.

Greg,

A few people are creating Java clients using Smack, but I don’'t know if they plan to make them Open Source. I certainly agree it would be a good project, though!

At the moment, we (Jive Software) don’'t plan to create a generic IM client in Java. Instead, our client development is for more specialized uses. This could certainly change based on customer demand, however.

Matt

Anyone interested in combining resources to build a nice Java open source client with the Smack API?

I am starting to build a client that I want to be on par with Exodus.

Hi glickster,

very interesting project, are you opening a new project @sourceorge?

One thing you may want to do is only target JDK 1.4.2 and later (even though it’'s currently in beta). The new Windows L&F is quite excellent and will finally allow Java desktop applications to functionaly feel like native applications.

Hi,

we are building an Eclipse plug-in based on Smack. We plan to also provide a standalone version based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform.

Mariano,

One cool feature for PepeMax would be Rendezvous support for automatic discovery of users on the local network. I know that someone has already extended Smack with this to support talking to iChat users on OS X.

Hi Matt,

indeed a very interesting idea.

Our near-term goals are to get MUC up and running, get the icons right (at least better) and also provide PepeMax as a rcp application.

After that I’'d love to have a closer look at the rendezvous thing. I believe Apple just released a Java client api.

I know that someone has already extended Smack with this >to support talking to iChat users on OS X.

I’‘ve seen a post here not too long ago. Is that what you are referring to? I’'ll have a second look at that, but I believe to remember that it was not heavy on details.

Cheers,

Mariano

i just begin one,

it’'s an applet.

it’'s called EUJA(End User Jabber Applet)

and it’'s destined to the end users.

it’'s hosted on jabberstudio.org

sourceforge project: gq-messenger is using smack to eventually add jabber protocols.

I am currently writing an opensource client called JBother. http://linuxhelp.homeunix.com/jbother
