About XMPP(From Wikipedia)
Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is an open-standard communications protocol for message-oriented middleware based on Extensible Markup Language (XML). The protocol was originally named Jabber, and was developed by the Jabber open-source community in 1999 for, originally, near-real-time, extensible instant messaging (IM), presence information, and contact list maintenance. Designed to be extensible, the protocol today also finds application in Voice over Internet Protocol and file transfer signaling.
Unlike most instant messaging protocols, XMPP uses an open systems approach of development and application, by which anyone may implement an XMPP service and interoperate with other organizations’ implementations. The software implementation and many client applications are distributed as free and open source software.
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) formed an XMPP Working Group in 2002 to formalize the core protocols as an IETF instant messaging and presence technology. The XMPP WG produced four specifications (RFC 3920, RFC 3921, RFC 3922, RFC 3923) which were approved by the Internet Engineering Steering Group as Proposed Standards in 2004. The XMPP Standards Foundation (formerly the Jabber Software Foundation) is active in developing open XMPP extensions.
XMPP-based software is deployed widely across the Internet and by 2003 was used by over ten million people worldwide, according to the XMPP Standards Foundation. Google Wave’s federation protocol is an extension to the XMPP protocol.
