I spent about three days writng an SWT based Google Talk client. And the client used Smack Jabber library, which has simple APIs. As writing the client, I kept the code compatible with Java2Script, which means that I can use the latest Java2Script daily release to pack it as a web servlet application and deploy it as rich internet application (RIA). Here is snapshot of Java2Script version of Google Talk:
And here is the online Java2Script’s GTalk.
And because Java2Script’s SimpleRPC supports Cross Site Script, the above application can be loaded from any pages by adding the following HTML
to your page.
By digging about Google Talk on Digg.com, I found that Google Talk Gadget on Google’s personalized homepage was really hitting the latest news.
The Java2Script’s Google Talk sources are available at SVN repository now:
And you can also download j2s-1.0.0-m5-gtalk.zip, unzip it and deploy gtalk.war to your Java servlet container.
