[icq-devel] ICQ-HTTP-Protocol for M50?

Hi list,
I noticed that ICQ is also able to use normal HTTP-Requests to work with a
normal HTTP-Proxy, and it looks like this is really HTTP-Protocol. I've been
curious, so I put in a local proxy and I found out that ICQ sends real
HTTP-requests to it, like:

POST http://64.12.163.130/data?sid=400ca3823e2.....13fd46bb&seq=175 HTTP/1.1
GET http://64.12.163.130/monitor?sid=400ca3823.....13fd46bb HTTP/1.1

This would make java client development for m50 a lot easier, since I've
found out, that it only supports http connections.

Has any of you ever done some research about this kind of ICQ protocol?

Greetings

Wolfgang
