"Jabber.com, Inc., a subsidiary of Webb Interactive Services, Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBB), today announced Palm and Jabber integration along with a three-way partnership between Jabber.com, WorkSpot, Inc., a premier open source Application Service Provider, and IQ3G, Inc., a leader in enterprise wireless solutions. The three-way partnership has been established as the foundation for a new Jabber wireless initiative and marks the beginning of Jabber's efforts in the wireless market. Under the new initiative, WorkSpot, IQ3G and Jabber.com immediately begin working together, along with the open source community, to develop Jabber compatibility with Palm devices."

"Jabber is the only open source, XML-based platform for extensible instant messaging applications. Open source means the source code may be freely shared and improved upon as long as it is returned to those who developed it. XML is an extensible markup language similar to HTML, the language used for producing most Web pages. Unlike HTML, however, XML is much more structured, flexible and functional in a business environment as it has the inherent ability to define the data it contains, in addition to formatting its presentation."
