Independent IM server in a mobile environment
This thesis, commissioned by Xpedio, describes instant messaging and
presence and the technique behind these services. It also puts forward the
implementation of an instant message and presence server intended for use in a
mobile network service platform.
Many different instant message and presence services exists today. Most of
them are developed to run over Internet using a stationary computer. Xpedio
intends to add this service to their platform in order to be used with handheld
computers and mobile phones. Because a handheld device has less memory and
processor speed than a stationary computer a service aimed for these devices
must have more efficient clients that do not require a lot of memory. The
server must then perform some tasks that are usually performed by the client.
This work demonstrates that it is possible to build and run an
instant message and presence service aimed for handheld devices.
The server can be made smart enough to have simple, memory effective clients
running on the devices. One can also implement support for other instant
message and presence services in the server. With this feature a user can, with
only one client application, communicate with users on other services. In this
way a user does not have to install multiple clients on the device and hence
