Currently the two most 'popular' component libraries are both python:

 - Twisted Words (used by PyMSNt, PyAIMt, PyICQt)
 - xmpp.py (used by PyYIMt, PyIRCt)

but there are other alternatives, eg:

 - Smack (Java, seems to be Client only)
 - agsXMPP (.Net, C#)
 - gloox (C)

have a look at the 'full list' at http://www.jabber.org/software/libraries.shtml
