J2XML Importer 1.6.0 is discontinued. J2XML 3 with J2XML Importer 1.5 plugin is the suggested alternative to this component.

J2XML consists of two separate components, J2XML for Joomla! 1.5 and J2XML Importer for Joomla! 2.5. J2XML has to be installed on the original Joomla 1.5 site to export information as XML files and J2XML Importer acts as an ‘importer’ which has to be installed on the new Joomla 2.5 website.

The new version 1.6.0.72 and above of the Importer allows you to keep the original user ids. So if you want to migrate to other components like JomSocial, Kunena or other, you can now do so without any problems.
