    If you want to do this in the easiest way possible, I would suggest
using jabberbeans from CVS. The current maintainer has added a class
called ConnectionBeanSSL to Jabberbeans which works exactly like the
ConnectionBean you are used to. Sadly, the maintainer has not made a
.jar release of the recent CVS changes, so you have to checkout and
rebuild jabberbeans.jar to use it. Jabberbeans uses an Ant script to
create the jar, so once you check it out, please look up ant on google
if you havent used it before.
    Jason Anderson and I are in the process of reviving the project now
so that new .jars with Jean-Louis's changes as well as the ones I just
mentioned are easily available, as well as new documenation. I will keep
JDEV posted when we make some progess in this regard.
