Subject: [JDEV] Creating a new Transport/jsm?

Hey there!

I've been reading the documentation found at jabber.org, however,
to write your own transport or module is obviously harder than it should
There should be a manual on this that explains how to build your own
transport and / or module.
I don't even know the difference between mod_echo and, say, irc
transport. Are they both transports or is mod_echo a module? And if so,
can I write my own modules that are not included under jsm/modules?
Too many names are used for the same thing? Agent, Transport, Module,
Component? What is what?

I have a lot of unanswered questions in my head and none of the
seem help me.
Even though there are many documents, they are either for people
installing already existing stuff or focus on instant messaging only
as I would like to use Jabber for more than just sending one-liners to
AIM, SMS, ICQ, etc.

If someone has any good suggestions on SPECIFIC documents that will aid
in my quest to create a
appreciate it! Also, if someone could straighten out the terminology,
would be good.
