Can it be possible? I saw the window version of server.
But that doesn't work correctly.And I couldn't see the source code.

I think running in window is little different from in linux.
What was the main problems?(ex. Database configuration is different.
Path is different. etc.)

The source code is available on this book's website at www.manning.com. It is
pure Java code so you should be able to run it on Win2k without problems (I
develop on Win2k Pro and MacOS X and it compiles and runs there). However, you
should be warned that this server is "educational" code for learning IM in
Java and is not even close to production ready.

I believe Tipic (www.tipic.com) provides a Win32 version of the jabberd server
which may be a better solution if you're dedicated to the Win2k platform for
deployment. I'm working on a commercial Java Jabber server so if you're
interested in that contact me directly (iain.shigeoka@messaginglogic.com).

I've never tried the book's server code on Linux but have been told it works
there. The book server doesn't use a database (it doesn't store any user
information to disk) so this is not an issue. Of course, this is a major
problem if you want to run a server that can save user accounts between runs.

Once again, the book code is for exploring and learning Jabber using Java. It
certainly can be modified for serious use but is not capable of such in it's
current form.
