I'm not sure what type of chatroom functionality you're looking for, but you
might have options through Jabber Instant Messenger (www.jabber.org), which
includes a groupchat transport.  I have personally been looking at ways to
implement the groupchat using a Java applet for specific projects managed
through an intranet.  As in Lotus Quickplace, when a team member loads the
project homepage, I would like for the applet to load automatically,
indicating the online presence of other team members and providing the
groupchat function.  Ideally, this would take advantage of existing zope
authentication.  I know LDAP and ODBC user storage has been implemented in
the CVS version of the Jabber server, so it should be able to query the same
user database as zope.  There is also an effort to implement the Jabber
server and groupchat transport in python at pyjama.sourceforge.net.
Information regarding java functionality, including a sample applet I think,
can be found at jabberbeans.org.  I would love to hear from anyone
interested implementing this type of integration between Jabber and Zope.

Good luck,
David

The most awesome - though commercial - chat system that I know of, is
"SpinChat":

homepage:
http://chat.spin.de/en/index.shtml

try one of the demos:
http://chat.spin.de/en/demos/index.shtml

or see it in action and chat with others:
http://www.spinchat.com

It's a highly configurable java chat system.

I would rather like to see one of the OpenSource Chats get integrated into
Zope (e.g. get pseudonym from LoginManager UserSource, integrate
administration in Zope management interface etc.), I'm not very happy with
ZRTChat. http://www.zope.org/Members/jwashin/ZRTChat
It's a great example and "100% Zope", but it will (would) need a lot of
enhancements for prod sites.

Betreff: [Zope] ChatRoom



Not Zope specific, but may be important for many web-masters...

Some days ago I was told to make a chatroom in our site.
I took a look at some products, but no one has satisfied me yet.
If anybody knows about _good_ chatroom, please let me know !

Where _good_ means:
   + highly customizable view of the chatroom
   + non-flickering refresh (I used jzChat from www.javazoom.net, but it
     uses JavaScript on client side, so refresh is flickering)

So, it should be Java applet on client side.
It can be almost anything on server side - Java servlet, Java
stand-alone application, native binary program, standard IRC server, CGI
script, Zope Product, etc...

I don't need many channels at one time.

If you have seen (almost) ready-to-use chatroom solution, your help is
greatly appreciated ! :)
