Beyond this, AS3 has introduced support for standard sockets, as Matt
reminds in his post. Beside XIFF which is being ported to AS3, there is an
XMPP library available on the Adobe lab site
http://weblogs.macromedia.com/flashplatform/flashplatform.zip or
http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Source:get which leverages these
sockets.

Using either library already allows writing "standard" (i.e. non null
terminated XML string) clients

I've been talking with people about Jabber and have a question... 

Is a server something you can compile with just webpages or does it require
some backend instaliation?

If so, can someone point me to a good company who hosts a jabber server? I'm
sure there must be one out there. :)

Hi Phillip!

Jabber requires a permanently running server backend.

I know there are such services, and I also heard that it is possible to 
use IRC hosting services to run a Jabber server, but there are still too 
few of them :-(

Yes, nice to hear.

Why do you target just me? I'm pretty sure there are others that 
(partially) share my vision.

Besides Daniel Noll's idea, an alternative would be to develop a bridge 
component that converts the unstandard Flash XML to standard XMPP. In 
this way it will work with all XMPP servers.

Instead, Jive Software decided to take the easy approach by adding 
support for the unstandard XML to Wildfire. This is unfair to other/new 
XMPP servers. Moreover, this quick and dirty making stuff "just work" 
can lead to protocol filthiness...such a situation would be even bad for 
Jive Software themselves in the long run. More details on 
http://ejabberd.jabber.ru/flash-issues

Btw, as an example to show the entry barrier, the coder of the still 
very small server project Tigase told me that he has no time to 
implement protocol violations like the Flash work around; he said he has 
already enough work with just implementing the XMPP specs.

Well, your pseudo-rant makes me think this is not 100% true. Anyway, you 
know how to solve the black listing issue ;-)

Hehe, as I was mentioned here let me say something too :-)

Working alone on a project I was tempted to take shortcuts
and implement some things in non-standard way to have results earlier.
There is a reason however to not do this.

No offense to Jive Software who has to provide just working server for
their customers. I understand that.

But breaking standards is something Microsoft is an expert at for years.
And now we end-up with WEB where some sites are only accessible
with IE and others are accessible with other browsers.
Web developers have hard time to create sites accessible from all
browsers.

So please don't do that again for Jabber/XMPP.

Artur

Well now that Adobe/Macromedia is supposedly acquiring Antepo, maybe 
they will build in more native XMPP support, so that the Flash hack can 
wither away... :-)
