Ok, I'm building a chat client and I want it to be able to connect to
the yahoo chat server with a given id, and do the same things that a
messenge does.
How do I go about it?
Can anybody give me the steps to go about with this?
1. How do I connect?
2. After the connection, how do I authenticate?
3. How do I get the friend list etc.?
4. How do I allow people to contact me using my yahoo id?
5. How do I contact people using their yahoo id?


I'm doing this as a project to show myself that I've still got some
stuff left- the last resort before dying of boredom.


Kindly help!

Try on the API JYMSN

This API is dedicated for Yahoo Messager!

thanks a lot! this is just what I was looking for, on the other hand I was planning to reconstruct the whole thing after a study of
http://sarovar.org/projects/ychat/
which is quite noteworthy.

Dear all,

Is there an IM gateway or access provider that allows users to send IM messages without an IM client?

Rgds,

1) Don't hijack threads. Create a new one instead.

2) Are you sure that both classes extend Throwable, Exception, or any subclass of those?
