Jabber, Inc. Announces APIs and Source for Building Jabber Applications And Connecting Jabber Servers

Commercially Developed Components Contributed to Open Source Project



Jan 10, 2002, 00:00 ET from Jabber, Inc.

    DENVER, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jabber, Inc. a leading developer
 of software for extensible instant messaging (IM), whose investors include
 Webb Interactive Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:   WEBB) and France Telecom (NYSE:   FTE),
 today announced availability of source code for two new software components
 designed to speed the development of applications on both commercial and open
 source Jabber servers.  JECL, a set of programming interfaces for building
 Jabber server applications, and SCM, enabling server to server connectivity
 between any Jabber networks, have been made available in source code form at
 no cost.
     JECL 1.0, the Jabber External Component Libraries, provides a programming
 interface to build applications that take advantage of Jabber's extensible XML
 messaging platform.  Examples are directory services and collaborative
 applications.  JECL enables developers to create applications that are
 distributed across multiple servers in a cluster, scaling to hundreds of
 thousands of users and providing fault tolerance through redundancy.
     SCM 1.0, Server Connection Manager, enables Jabber servers anywhere on the
 network to communicate peer to peer.  The result is that Jabber Instant
 Messaging users in an enterprise or service provider can seamlessly exchange
 messages in real time with Jabber users connected to Jabber servers run by
 other organizations.  This software is intended to accelerate connectivity
 amongst the more than 50,000 Jabber servers installed worldwide.
     Jabber, Inc. is a commercial software company associated with the
 Jabber Open Source Project.  Contribution of source code for these
 commercially developed components, for use at no cost by other Jabber
 developers, is part of Jabber, Inc.'s continued efforts to promote the use of
 the Jabber protocol and extensible messaging technology.
      Interested developers can download JECL and SCM components from
