Having no previous experience using Jabber for instant messaging, my interest was piqued when I first picked up a copy of Iain Shigeoka�s "Instant Messaging In Java - The Jabber Protocols". I have to admit that my interest waned somewhat as I read through to the final chapters. I expect this is due, in part, to the Jabber protocols but this is my general impression having read the book. That said, the authors writing style is effortless, making this, like many of the Manning titles, a lucid and well-paced discussion of the Jabber Protocols. The client/server example is well thought out and develops nicely over the course of the book. If you have any interest in developing a real time messaging system, I�d certainly recommend this title - the only caveat being that, obviously, you accept an implementation using the Jabber protocols.
