This page describes a proposal to integrate Jabber protocol into James. In many ways, Jabber support would be a very nice fit with James. Amongst the functional and social benefits for James to support Jabber:

  • Instant Messaging is a killer application. Integrating it gets a lot more people interested in, using and supporting James.
  • Jabber instant messaging makes use of a server oriented service model (client-server-client), so the fit is there.
  • James could incorporate store and forward, allowing disconnected Jabber traffic.
  • James could integrate Jabber and e-mail in several ways
    • Combined mail / Jabber account management
    • Jabber notification of events (e-mail, NNTP, other)
    • Integrate Jabber digests onto mailing lists
    • Integrate Jabber and e-mail address spaces for short messages
    • Jabber pipeline (per-user?) which would provide IM-automation
  • James could provide IM and other messaging metrics
