======================= MANNING PRESS RELEASE ======================= Manning Publications announces the release of: Instant Messaging in Java: The Jabber Protocols Greenwich, Connecticut, April 2002 -- Instant messaging (IM) is a new combination of two old ideas: messaging and presence. In IM, the two are combined in a way proven to be useful--and even wildly popular--by online chat systems. Because it is an open, XML-based IM protocol that runs on top of TCP/IP (i.e., the Internet), Jabber allows developers to easily incorporate IM into their software. Instant Messaging in Java: The Jabber Protocols shows developers how. This book covers the Jabber IM protocol and takes developers through the process of building their own Jabber IM client and server in Java. It explains sending messages, updating presence, and maintaining rosters or "buddy lists," using Jabber and Java. Designed for two-way asynchronous communications, Jabber can be a better protocol for dynamic B2B XML applications than the one-way, request/response HTTP, and this too is explained in the book. About the Author Iain Shigeoka, who has a Ph.D. in robotics, CAD, and automation, specializes in the use of Java in embedded systems and network appliances. He is a participant and contributor to the Open Source Jabber community and lives in San Diego, California. About Manning Publications Co.
