which i should add this is all hidden if you are running a java 
implementation of a XMMP daemon (openfire for example) as those 
libraries are either part of the base JRE or bundled as jar files w/ the 
app itself.

if you really want a lean XMMP implementation you may need to look at 

although you loose all of the greatness of erlang/mnesia for distributed 
xmmp deployments (i've done it, it's great for organizations with 
multiple offices around the globe), and ease of management that openfire 
could potentially give you (AD integration for example).

anywho...different strokes for different folks...
