[jdev] Sending messages via web server

If you want to send messages to a server I recommend C#/WebServices,
which, in my opinion, is by far the easiest way to deliver messages to a
Jabber server and to make a WebService endpoint at the same time. You
could use AGSXMPP to do this.

I do prefer the spooling way of doing things, as Alexander stated,
because you shouldn't be connecting to a server to send one message, it
could bring your web server or your jabber server, or both, to their
knees (continuous SSL/TLS negotiation etc.), rather write a
WebService/REST to dump files in the spooling directory...

Can someone elaborate on the JabberD1.4 method (i.e. directory and file
names to use)? Maybe I could write a Web Service for this guy.
