JSJaC - JavaScript Jabber Client Library


JSJaC is an XMPP (formerly known as Jabber) client library written in JavaScript to ease implementation of web based XMPP clients. For communication with an XMPP server it needs to support either HTTP Polling or XMPP Over BOSH (formerly known as HTTP Binding) or XMPP Over WebSocket. JSJaC has an object oriented interface which should be quite easy to use. Communication is done by using the HTTPRequest object (also refered to as AJAX technology) or WebSocket. Your browser must support this. JSJaC is fully compatible with all major JavaScript frameworks. Note: As security restrictions of most modern browsers prevent HTTP Polling from being usable anymore this module is disabled by default now. If you want to compile it in use 'make polling'.
