Hi,

Messenger is a standard XMPP server so any client can be used with it including ones that create an HTML client. For Java, we strongly recommend Smack, our open source, Java XMPP client library:

It is easy to use Smack to build a Servlet that can serve up an HTML client interface. Several people are using it this way including us. You can discuss this use in our Smack forum:

If you need to work in another language there are other XMPP libraries available. In particular we are partners with Winfessor (http://www.winfessor.com/) to help customers that require a high quality .NET library.

Hi iain,

Thanks for the quick reply.I was checking the functionality of all the products jive providing,which are open source.I am working on jive messenger to use it and i worked with Exodus.It is working fine.For all these whole setup i am using Tomcat4.1.

As you suggested today i gone through smack and used it.I will be very thankful to you, if you could provide the servlet which you are using which serves as HTML client,so that i can plug-in my server and use it.

Thanks,

Bhanu

Hi,

If the servlet is not in the current Smack distribution please post to the Smack forums and request that it be included. I know it was planned for release as part of the open source distribution but I guess it hasn’‘t made it in yet. I think when Matt sees there is strong interest from you (and I imagine others will also back you up in requesting it) he’'ll be motivated to adding it to the distribution.
