About the Distribution
The smack.jar file in the main distribution folder is the only binary file required for embedding XMPP functionality into client applications. The optional smackx.jar contains the Smack extensions while smackx-debug.jar contains an enhanced debugger.
If you downloaded the developer release, the full source of the library is included in the source directory and can be compiled using the build scripts found in the build directory (please see the README file in the build directory for further details).
