Thanks for the quick response!
I kinda figured as much … Openfire and Smack are great products, and i figured if the IM Gateway core were available as a package it would be “advertised” already.
We use Openfire here and just love it. And now I’ll be writing a headless client using Smack to allow sending simple IM messages from within my applicaton.
My goal is to send out a batch of about 1000-2000 very short IM’s (25 wds) to people over various transports (no chat - just Headline type messages).
I don’t want to killl anyone’s server doing this - especially AOL’s who can be real nasty with their “rate limiting”.
Other than sending out small subsets with a pause in between, I can’t think of any way to lessen the pain. Any insights?
Thanks for all the help!
Good luck with your plans! Looking forward to seeing the fruits.
