I am using it either and ejabberd is in my opinion the best Jabber 
server: scalable through clustering feature and Erlang ability to handle 
*a lot* of connection per virtual machine, fault-tolerant thanks to 
Erlang characteristics, easily extensible. This is a must. I have set up 
a server more than 6 months ago and I did forget about it. No problem at 
all running it.

We are building an EAI solution on top of it called J-EAI 
Version 1.0 should be ready very soon now.
