JabberApplet facts
  • Works with jabberd2, jabberd14 and other server software
  • As of 2002, not under active development anymore as all design goals reached
  • Consider using some other client if you want a more full-featured or stylish applet
  • No support for XMPP over HTTP (BOSH) - outgoing connection on port 5222 needs to be supported
  • No support for TLS/SSL - only hashed password login supported

  JabberApplet Primary design goals
  1. Keep it small
  2. Easy user interface
  3. Support basic instant message functionality
  4. Low requirements on the client side
