I've written apps using alternately Jabberbeans, Yaja! and Smack, and Smack
is *by far* the most reliable and well documented. Smack isn't necessarily
the best for writing components (or wasn't when I last used it, but I
believe they've done more work in that area since), but its overall XMPP
support is superior to everything else I've used.

Unless anyone has a better suggestion (I've never used Marbles, for
instance), I'd love to hear it, because I'd be pretty surprised :)
