   you can search for bTalk which is an open-source Google talk  client written for BlackBerry. This project is based on 

JXA(J2ME XMPP API) and does not use BIS/BES. The source link is  http://code.google.com/p/btalk/downloads/list

Hi All,


I would like to develop a chat appliation(like Yahoo Messange) in Blackberry. I don't know how to start my development, what to select as peer-to-peer communication medium.  I have heard that Jabber is the good solution for the same, however i would like your opinion and suggestion to proceed on right direction.


Please assist me in terms of protocol, medium and available solutions to achieve the same.





If your app needs to talk to other apps, you need to speak the their protocol. Otherwise, can't you just make up your own protocol? If you want to do client to client direct, SIP is good protocol to use.
