Hi,has any one been working on a chat messenger (yahoo/msn)? I have a requiremnet came up in my company has assigned me a module which contains a chat messenger application. Its specifications are same as that of the yahoo and google talk, a user should be able to chat on one to one bases or as well as group up many people for a conferencing like chat too.

If any one of you have such ready to run application [... please let me know.] I am in a urgent need of it. If you dont have any backup then please try to help me out with ideas how i would be able to design it or some proper documentation. Thanks in advance.

The application is basicly designed on JSP / SERVLET / STRUTS so any reday made application will be much preffered.

Have you had a look for open source chat programs out there? Or even commercial ones that are designed to be used by the enterprise? You may not even have to build this project!

I have looked aroud on internet for open source chat applications, but my company need me to design one of our own so that we can configure it with our Enterprise Reporting application

Did you find any open source solutions? The beauty of open source is that you do not need to write it in the first place, but that you can adapt it to your specific requirements.

I seem to remember that Jabber grew out of the need for a Java IM API. Someone even wrote a book on it.
I don't know what the level of effort would be to integrate it with an enterprise reporting app, but I would not think it would be more than either getting code from a random stranger (which is what you ask for in your first post) or building you own IM application.
