I have installed openfire. How can the clients register themselves on the server ? Do I have to write separate code for that ? I mean, do I have to write some kind of action handler for that ?

How do you want the clients to register themselves? OpenFire can use a local user database with registration of users, or an LDAP database where the users are populated in some other way. – Shane Madden Aug 13 '13 at 1:47

There's a plugin to handle user registration. See here.

Can I do it manually ? Like using a web form for user registration – Suhail Gupta Aug 13 '13 at 1:58
On that page "Web Page Registration - Allows users to create accounts via a web page." – Journeyman Geek Aug 13 '13 at 1:59
@JourneymanGeek I didn't get you – Suhail Gupta Aug 13 '13 at 2:00
@SuhailGupta Answer is yes - the plugin provides a registration web page. – Shane Madden Aug 13 '13 at 2:12
@SuhailGupta Seems that you can indeed register users via smack, see this SO question: - the registration plugin and a number of others can be downloaded from here: – Shane Madden Aug 13 '13 at 5:25
