I'm not sure who you were hinting at Hal, but we are continually working
on a client/server library.  From the looks of the librarylist page we
have the only server enabled library.  That can't be right. . .

Winfessor's SoapBox Framework supports both the client and server side
of the XMPP protocol.  Part of the server framework is not yet released,
but our server is built on it.  The only major area of XMPP Core/IM we
don't yet support is Privacy Lists.  We actually had to add a
"non-strict" mode into our server as it was rejecting packets from
non-compliant clients and was unuseable in the wild.  We support a
fairly large number of JEPs, and the number is continually increasing.
Obviously there are some areas of the framework that could be
non-compliant, but we have been pretty careful when building it.

We have a very large number of unit tests that we use to regression test
our server and framework that already do much of the work involved in
compliance testing.  For example, we test all of the edge cases dealing
with Roster/Presence integration (a hairy area) against the server.  We
might be able to fit this into JSF compliance testing some how.
