Use cases for Jabber as middleware

From: Grant Bowman (
Date: Mon Apr 02 2001 - 09:43:07 PDT

Here are five use-cases developed on the "Jabber as middleware
developers" mail list, jamdev. There is also an early draft vision
paper. There isn't much content for either of these yet, but they
include a fresh transport perspective on developing collaborative

Using an IM system that is multi-protocol like Jabber as middleware
has interesting implications. One feature is dynamic application
discovery. Another is resource subscriptions as well as supporting
more traditional authentication, queuing and transactions.

Greetings all..

I'm have just posted another round of documentation to the website; of yet, I don't have a nice front page to index them all, so here's the direct links: * * (empty) *

Most of you will probably find the use case summary the most interesting. It's the start of a detailed look at all the things applications will be able to do with JAM, as well as a ranking of difficulty and priority. Of note, most of the initial usecases will be high in priority and fairly difficult (since we have to come up with an entire protocol).

I also intend to write up a JAM roadmap so that we can start getting some dates designated for development. Hopefully, the use case summary, vision docs and roadmap will be completed by Monday.

As always, please feel free to ask questions about these docs. I would be highly suprised if anyone understood exactly what I was talking about simply from reading the use case descriptions. :)
