Thanks for your prompt reply. Unfortunately SmallTalk does not seem to be in
the list of supported client libraries. The nearest language seems to be

On a slightly different note can a Jabber server accept email messages and
then post them to a specific forum? This will solve my immediate requirement
- which is to simply post messages from my application to the chat server -
not receive them.  

Thanks again,

The first step would be integrating a XMPP client library into your
application. There are client libraries for several languages
(http://www.jabber.org/software/libraries.shtml). The library will provide
you with a straightforward way of interacting with other clients using XMPP.

Then you need to understand a little bit of the XMPP protocol and its
extensions (http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/). Especially, you need to
understand what extensions are implemented by this "instant messaging system
developed by Jabber.com" you mentioned, and how you interact with them.

Good luck,
