JBuddy Messenger is an instant messaging client designed for everyday business use. It supports public instant messaging networks including AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo. With a paid license, JBuddy Messenger adds support for Google Talk, IBM Lotus Sametime, XMPP/Jabber, Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS 2007) and Live Communications Server (LCS 2005), and the JBuddy Message Server. JBuddy Messenger offers the concept of a Meta-Buddy (Trillian calls them Meta Contacts), which is an aggregation of the presence of multiple screen names under one buddy. Also, buddy groups of the same name across multiple accounts can be visually merged to simplify large buddy lists.
JBuddy Developer Tools is a robust suite of APIs and software development frameworks for creating instant messaging applications and solutions. It is comprised of the JBuddy SDK, JBuddy Bot Builder, and JBuddy Bot Framework. The JBuddy SDK is a unified IM client API supporting public IM services including AIM, ICQ, Windows Live (MSN), Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, and enterprise IM servers including Lotus Sametime, Microsoft Live Communications Server (LCS 2005), Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS 2007), and XMPP (Jabber) servers. The core JBuddy SDK implementation and APIs are available in Java while a tight C++ wrapper exposes the JBuddy APIs for Microsoft COM and .NET. The JBuddy Bot Builder and JBuddy Bot Framework are built on top of the JBuddy SDK and greatly simplify building, testing, and deploying powerful IM Bots.
