[jdev] Looking for a good Java API

I'm looking at JSO right now and I agree - I see no sample code, no
"getting started"... I need something I can use right away. I'll take a
look at Yaja too but unless there's adequate user documentation
switching to another API at this point may put me too far behind so I
may just have to persevere with Smack.
