Project site and documentation now available!

Today I've uploaded a project site and some documentation for the project, which is now available here.

Babbler is still in a quite early stage, but it's slowly shaping up. There have been numerous XEP's implemented during the last weeks and I am planning to implement more. Once it's mature enough and I have a better overview over the XEPs and their interdependencies, I am planning to release a first version. Until then, there's only the source and some snapshot builds for you.

If you have any feedback of any kind, e.g. on the project itself or especially the API, let me know!


  1. Hello Christian, im trying to make some smoke tests using your xmpp api. But im facing host-unknow error.

    Thank you very much in advance,

    1. Hi, ok, send it to christian dot schudt at gmx dot de

      You mean UnknownException? Maybe you used a wrong port.

    2. Hello Christian, email is on the way. Kind regards.

  2. Hi Christian,

    I am new to XMPP in general and I see lots of potential of its use in application. After trying some test program on Smack API, I was impressed with your Babbler library, it is direct and natural to work with.

    Anyway, when I write my first program, I have some problem with connection. During the connect command, the client and server exchanges some handshaking information and the program hang there.
    I am not sure what happen and how to solve this issue.

    I am sending a simple source code and would be grateful if you take a llok and advise me accordingly.

    Thanks in advance.

    BTW, I would like to suggest that you give a note to other users who are coming from window platforms to include the "-Dfile.encoding=UTF8" in the VM argument to set the encoding.
