Can I make new protocol on the spark?

I will make the white board.

It will be running on private IP address. Then the protocol of the white board through the server.


  1. How can I make my own protocol?.

  2. How can I detect the protocol on the spark?

I don’t know about possiblity of adding custom protocol.


Spark dosnt really know about anything except XMPP. On the plus side, XMPP is extendable, so you can write a plugin for Spark that just makes use of that fact.

Hi Pobi,

You could take a look at our implementation of a whiteboard for Spark.
