I have read some of this book and I don't like it that much. I personally feel the author spends too much time with things that are pretty easy to compress.
Looking backwards I think the Jabber documentation is enough to write an IM client. I wrote one for alarming purposes. This is the first edition and the book has plenty of errors in the text. ( The code samples seem to be O.K.). Obviously the author was so busy pushing out his book that he didn't let anyone proofread it.
I would recommend to buy another book ( there are plenty ) or rely on the Jabber documentation and the plenty of samples the web has to offer.

Highly recommended for any developer with some Java experience who is interested in IM technology. Iain Shigeoka takes you through the background of the technology, and then takes you through an easy to follow guide to produce a fully working Jabber server and test client. The book also includes a very usefull reference section and stresses important issues relating to the technology. I have personally found this book invaluable whilst producing a Jabber framework as part of my dissertation, and has given me direction to further my knowledge in this area, buy the book!:)

If you're a Java developer and are interested in creating a Jabber server, or embedding Jabber functionality into an existing application, this is a great book. The author iteratively builds a Jabber server, adding new features as each chapter explores additional parts of the Jabber protocols -- this is a very helpful approach. The Jabber protocol reference at the back of the book is also great.
