All the clients I found so far aren't pure web, they use either flash or
java to connect to the server. I had an intention to make a
jabber-based web chat, but things look quite complicated to me.

The major problem is our beloved statelessness of the HTTP. That means
the web server must keep all sessions to the jabber server. I don't
see a good way to do it using mod_perl.

Probably it would make sense to invent special stateless transport for
the jabber server. The jabber server keeps sessions anyway so we could
unburden the client and provide a way for the client to send what it
wants and fetch the whole backlog of waiting messages.

Best regards,
 Mike                            mailto:mike at shoyher.com
