In the News...

And for some good news...

More and more people are using JClaim as an IM platform, module and framework for other projects. Read about it in this month's JavaWorld magazine:

Pick up a copy today or go to this link:

http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-05-2006/jw-0515-jclaim.html

It explains how to integrate with JCLaim's IM framework. Which classes to use and how. Provides some sample code to get one going. Great article.
