I'd like to pose a question as to which XMPP library would be the best choice nowadays, for Android development.
- I've been using the patched Smack
library from here as is
suggested in many other questions
here in SO. However, that's a patched version of
the Smack API from two years ago. And
although it generally works well I'm
exploring any other, more recent
- I've been looking at the official
Smack API and after a little
research, it seems it might work just
fine nowadays (although I have not
tried it yet in a real application).
- There's also another solution I came
across, Beem's aSMACK library.
Beem is a fairly new XMPP client for
android and from what I understand
they are using their own patched
version of aSMACK.
- Finally, there's aSMACK but that
too hasn't been updated for quite
some time (as the site suggests).
Do you have any other suggestions or can you explain why I should choose one of the above over the rest?
