Jaggernaut or Jabber for IM in Rails?

Hi All,

I have experienced connecting to the server using Juggernaut plugin.
I have also heard about Jabber for instant messaging.
Can you tell me which one is better for Rails? Jabber or Juggernaut?

Also please give some link for referring on installation procedure for
Jabber.

Thanks in advance.

Um, Jabber is a chat protocol. It has nothing to do with Rails.
Juggernaut allows you to push information out to web browsers without
them first requesting information. This is a Rails plugin.

Put together as needed.

We actually worked on a project earlier this year where we used a jabber server and JSJaC (http://zeank.in-berlin.de/jsjac/), a javascript Jabber client. It wasn’t without it’s share of hassles, but it was actually an interesting solution. It enabled us to do chat in the browser that was completely separated from the Rails app.

Also please give some link for referring on installation procedure for

Jabber.

I don’t instructions, but if you’re interested to hear more about it, feel free to contact me and I could put you in touch with the guys on our team that did most of the heavy lifting.

Is there any plugin in rails for Jabber?

Googling for "rails jabber" turns up this:

http://www.rubyinside.com/actionmessenger-basic-im-jabber-support-for-rails-142.html

which is a bit old.

You could use xmpp4r: http://home.gna.org/xmpp4r/ and learn how to use it http://www.rubyinside.com/introduction-to-xmpp-and-xmpp4r-for-ruby-developers-709.html as any self-respecting programmer would due with "new" technology.
