You might want to check out Jabber. http://www.jabber.org
The main problem with IM is that most such services (Yahoo!, AOL IM, ICQ) are proprietary. Jabber is open-source, so you don't get into the problem of limited or undocumented interfacing (or having the vendor lock you out like a certain big-name outfit did to another certain big-name outfit ). There is a Jabber API for Java.

Aamir,
I understand your need , i was just quoting this site for u to take on some design issues from an already implemented web application
to have your own instant messaging system is really quite simple with java api's u can have a simple server setup in no more than 20 lines of code and same with a simple client application.

there are many simple server source codes available on the net.
if you can't find one get back to me and i'll try to get u one.
