JavaScript Google Talk

Google Talk is available in three flavors: a Windows application, Gmail Chat and a Flash gadget that can be embedded into a web page. Zhou Renjian built a JavaScript version that looks a lot like the desktop client, even if it doesn't include voice calls. "It is first implemented in Java language using Eclipse SWT and Smack (A library for Jabber's XMPP). Then the client is converted to JavaScript with servlet supports. And then it's deployed on a Tomcat server." The Java code has been converted to JavaScript using Java2Script.


Of course, Meebo also uses AJAX and can be used to chat with your Google Talk contacts. But both are too complex to work on a mobile phone.
