IBM SashJab

SashJab is an Instant Messaging client from IBM based on the open source Jabber technology. It is part of the Sash Weblication family, a platform for application development using existing web technologies such as HTML, DHTML and XML to create lightweight Sash "weblications". The idea is to migrate application development from traditional C++ type programming languages to the simpler "SashScript", a superset of JavaScript that allows the program to be executed in its native platform code. Simply put Sash allows developers to create applications from existing web-technologies that will run independent of the web browser. The SashJab application is developed using an XML framework which allows the user to interface with a variety of Instant Messaging clients including: AOL's Instant Messenger and ICQ. See the FAQ for more information.
