[jdev] Re: Problem Connecting to GoogleTalk using my custom client

I do agree Norman that instead of building something from scratch I can work
on improving an existing library. But the "so-called" library that I am
working on is going to be very basic and I am writing it purely for my own
understanding. Besides, most of the current libraries have many dependancies
which I am not so comfortable with.

Somebody please tell me how I can do the TLS/SASL part in order to connect
to GoogleTalk... This is the latest XML trace that I get...

SENT:
<?xml version='1.0'?><stream:stream to='gmail.com <http://gmail.com>'
xmlns='jabber:client' xmlns:stream='http://etherx.jabber.org/streams'

Does this mean GoogleTalk ONLY supports X-GOOGLE-TOKEN??? I don't see any
advertisement for SASL-PLAIN or MD5 or anything....

How did you guys fix this problem? Can somebody tell me what things should
be done after I first receive the reply from google server???

Thanks and awaiting your reply,
