Hello Laura

I often get asked about the differences between XMPP and other protocols for use in IoT, such as MQTT, HTTP, CoAP, AMQP, DDS.
I've answered with white papers describing the pros and cons of each.

I often also get comments about XMPP from proponents of some of the other protocols:

It's verbose, or telegram size is too large.
My answer: You can use a very efficient binary serialization of XMPP telegrams using EXI (XEP-0322), if telegram size is important.

Too complex to learn. Other protocols have simple tutorials to get started.
My answer: Correct. We have to create better tutorials. The technology in itself is not necessarily more complex than any of the other choices. It comes down to availability of good libraries and good examples/tutorials.

Memory footprint is too large.
There are papers that show that memory footprint does not necessarily have to be so large.

Best regards,
Peter Waher

Hi all,

I am working on the FAQ page of the website.

When you talk to people (developers or not) about XMPP, what questions do you frequently get asked?
