You could either write a jabber client that connects to the jabber 
server normally (e.g. port 5222) and acts like a user bot.  Users could 
then send commands to the bot as they would normal users, but the bot 
would interpret the messages and act accordingly.

Or you could write a full on component that connects to the server via 
it's own port.  Users would register with the component and interact 
accordingly.  (http://www.jabber.org/admin/components.php).

Have a look at the following URL:

I recommend Programming Jabber by DJ Adams, and the code examples can be 
downloaded here: http://examples.oreilly.com/jabber/jabber_examples.tgz 
  (I think there are a few examples that will be useful, such as the rss 
news headlines)
