New IM Product Rolling Out of Oracle

New IM Product Rolling Out of Oracle: "The offerings will be built on the XMPP (for Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) (define), which competes with the widely-used SIMPLE protocol (Session Initiation Protocol for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions) (define). But Sunkara said Oracle could build an adapter for compatibility with the SIP-SIMPLE protocol too.
He also said the new messaging offerings will be designed to work on a variety of devices (desktops, laptops, personal digital assistants and Web-enabled phones) and operating systems (Windows, Linux and Macintosh).
...
... Paul Haverstock, an architect in Microsoft's real-time collaboration unit, said the company is working to make IM more useful by enhancing graphics and working on portability across devices."

Congrats to Paul on his joining the Redmond-based subset of axle.org...
