I am new to ICQ and I have some questions. I have been utilizing JOscarLib
and looking at the documentation on http://www.rejetto.com/icq/ to begin
learning about the protocol. I have been able to successfully compile,
login, and send/receive messages. But there are a couple of items that I
have been unable to determine.
1. Does the actual message transmit on a peer-to-peer basis, or does it go
to server and then get transmitter from the server to the receiving client?
2. How is group chat handled? Is this handled on the server or is the
client responsible for multiple transmissions to multiple clients?
3. Is anyone familiar with the capabilities of JOscarLib and, if so, do you
know if it has group chat capabilities?
