AIM<-->LJ Interface [May. 30th, 2005|03:56 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |excitedexcited]

I'm interested in making an AIM interface to LiveJournal. It would most likely be an AIM bot which you would IM posts to. The bot would run on someone's server... mine right now. (eventually LiveJournal's?)

Has anything like this been done before? If so, please let me know.

I'm interested in using PHP, Java, and MySQL. Joscar seems to be a good AIM library for Java. Does anyone know of a good Java - MySQL library? Is JDBC good?

Any suggestions, comments, etc will be appreciated!

You have to tell your OpenID server that the AIM bot is allowed (seeing as LJ will almost certainly be your server, you'd use the LJ interface, requiring a signon to the Web interface).

The LJ OpenID server already supports perment permision grant. Yes the bot will have to jump through the hoops all the time, but the user will not need to participate in the authentication.
