aSmack (DEPRECATED/OBSOLETE) - buildsystem for Smack on Android

Deprecation Notice: aSmack no longer required - Use Smack 4.1 instead

aSmack is deprecated and obsolete. Starting with Version 4.1 Smack is able to run without modifications on Android.

More information on how to use Smack 4.1 in your Android Project can be found in the Smack 4.1 Readme and Upgrade Guide.


This repository doesn't contain much code, it's a build environment!

This repository contains a source fetching, patching and building script. As well as all the minor changes to make an Android version fly. See the patches/ folder for a detailed list of changes and applied scripts.

Compiled JARs

Make sure to read the README for every release! Or else aSmack won't work for you. 95% of the problems people experiencing with aSmack come from the fact that they didn't read the README.

The JARs can be found @ http://asmack.freakempire.de/

Support & Contact

The best way to get support is IRC: Join #smack @ freenode. But keep in mind that this is IRC, it may take a while till you get an answer. Up to a few days. So make sure to idle around. :)

You can also use upstream's discussion forum: https://community.igniterealtime.org/community/support/smack_users

Apps that use this fork of aSmack


Please only base changes on aSmack if they are in fact aSmack specific. Most code improvments should be done directly in Smack so that both worlds (Java SE and Android) benefit from it.

Your code contribution must follow Smack's contributor guidelines, be good documented and should contain some testcases. Then you can simply join #smack @ freenode and ask for a code review.
