This isn't really specific to ejabberd but here is a snippet of the code I am using to connect using an external component. The class should implement org.xmpp.component.Component;

        try {
            ExternalComponentManager _mgr = new ExternalComponentManager(xmppServer, xmppPort);
            _mgr.setSecretKey(componentJid, secretKey);
            _mgr.addComponent(componentJid, this);
        } catch (ComponentException e) {
            log.error("Error setting up external component " + componentJid, e);

The rest of the logic is in the processPacket method.

You really should read this blog post: http://oneminutedistraction.wordpress.com/2010/10/08/developing-xmpp-components-the-service-2/ and note that both the Whack and Tinder libraries are required. I recommend building the latest version of Whack from Subversion and using the JARs - including Tinder - that come in the build/lib/dist and build/lib/merge subdirectories of the Whack distribution. I also recommend using Maven because Whack has a *lot* of dependencies for a fairly simple API.
