"Jabber is a new
project I recently started to create a complete open-source
platform for Instant Messaging with transparent communication
to other IM systems(ICQ, AIM, etc). Most of the initial
design and protocol work is done, as well as a working server
and a few test clients."
If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the
answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
