Smack Integration for Enterprise Apps


Can someone please give me examples of Enterprise Applications that smack can be used to function other than for Instant Messaging.

Also how can I find out the size of a XMPP packet once it is sent to another user?




Smack implements the XMPP protocol, so anywhere you’'d use XMPP, you can use Smack. Some examples:

  • Use Smack to provide presence information about components in an enterprise as monitoring type service.

  • Use it as a general messaging framework, especially when the messaging has to go out across the internet.

I hope that helps. I’'m sure there are much better resources that describe what XMPP can be used for, however.
