Item description for Instant Messaging in Java: The Jabber Protocols by Iain Shigeoka & Lain Shigeoka...
Written as a mid-level programming guide, this book provides Java programmers with the information and tools needed to create their own Instant Messenger client and server software. This software can then be used to create personalized IM systems or integrate IM features into existing software. Focus is given to the open source Jabber XML-based IM protocols to create Java IM software. These open protocols allow IM software to seamlessly communicate with the larger number of other Jabber clients and servers available including commercial Jabber systems such as Disney's go.com IM.

Reviews - What do customers think about Instant Messaging in Java: The Jabber Protocols?
There is a lot of Jabber documentation out there Mar 16, 2003
I have read some of this book and I don't like it that much. I personally feel the author spends too much time with things that are pretty easy to compress. Looking backwards I think the Jabber documentation is enough to write an IM client. I wrote one for alarming purposes. This is the first edition and the book has plenty of errors in the text. ( The code samples seem to be O.K.). Obviously the author was so busy pushing out his book that he didn't let anyone proofread it.
I would recommend to buy another book ( there are plenty ) or rely on the Jabber documentation and the plenty of samples the web has to offer.
Superb guide to Jabber development Feb 7, 2003
Highly recommended for any developer with some Java experience who is interested in IM technology. Iain Shigeoka takes you through the background of the technology, and then takes you through an easy to follow guide to produce a fully working Jabber server and test client. The book also includes a very usefull reference section and stresses important issues relating to the technology. I have personally found this book invaluable whilst producing a Jabber framework as part of my dissertation, and has given me direction to further my knowledge in this area, buy the book!:)
Excellant and Informative book Dec 31, 2002
Instant Messaging in Java is an excellant and informative book for all levels of programmers. If you are new to IM and would like a book that will catapult you into to this technology, this is the book for you. The program examples are easy to follow for if you have java experience. Also if you are an experiened programmer planning to implement production code the insights gained from this book are invaluable. Mr. Shigeoka has done an excellent job of stressing the Jabber protocols yet using java's multi-platform capabilities. Highly recommended!
A great Jabber book Dec 20, 2002
A great book, very well written, and very intresting. Realy helped me to enter the new of world of Jabber, and to understand its internals. A must have.
I Couldn't Put it Down Dec 13, 2002
I should not have started this book in the afternoon. I could not put it down. This is a very unusual book that teaches things that are Jabber unrelated. We participate in the construction of a Jabber server and Jabber client as we go through the book. The construction is not your usual namby-pamby baloney either. The construction, while not commercial grade, leaves us with an application which could easily be refactored into whatever you want to do with Jabber. Another good book by Manning. Manning is having quite a Fall in 2002.
