The first step would be integrating a XMPP client library into your
application. There are client libraries for several languages
(http://www.jabber.org/software/libraries.shtml). The library will
provide you with a straightforward way of interacting with other
clients using XMPP.

Then you need to understand a little bit of the XMPP protocol and its
extensions (http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/). Especially, you need to
understand what extensions are implemented by this "instant messaging
system developed by Jabber.com" you mentioned, and how you interact
with them.

Good luck,
