Change IDETalk to use GoogleTalk?

Hi all,

Would it be possible to change the IDE Talk to use a different protocol or server? I've just tried to use IDE Talk again, and I've went through the list of Jabber services, and so far, I found none which works. So I was wondering if it could be improved by using a different service (maybe even pluggable, or with an API) to use something else, like MSN/GoogleTalk/something else. That would make this (potentially awesome) feature a lot more awesome!

Btw, I also tried this feature on a local network with 3 Mac machines and one Windows XP: none of these pc's where able to see each other, even though they had the same project open.

Hello Erik,

Would it be possible to change the IDE Talk to use a different
protocol or server? I've just tried to use IDE Talk again, and I've
went through the list of Jabber services, and so far, I found none
which works.


JetBrains has a Jabber server (intellijoin.org) which is suggested to you
by default and is supposed to work. :) Have you tried it?

So I was wondering if it could be improved by using a
different service (maybe even pluggable, or with an API) to use
something else, like MSN/GoogleTalk/something else. That would make
this (potentially awesome) feature a lot more awesome!


The plugin is open-source, so you can look into it yourself. As far as I
understand, it does have pluggable transports.

Hi Dimitry,

Yes, I've tried to intellijoin.org, and even that one didn't work. Maybe it has something to do with the network here. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out!

Yes, you can use IDETalk as GTalk. Setting as following:
server: talk.google.com
port: 5222
user: your gmail accout, such foobar@gmail.com
password: your gmail password

Note that GoogleTalk uses the Jabber protocol. To use GoogleTalk from
IDETalk use the server talk.google.com:5222
and fill in your google email (e.g. me@gmail.com) and password.

Works good for me.

Never mind me, I did not see that message from linux_china.

Ah, great! It works out of the box, and I can even connect to it. Hmm, maybe it wasn't related to my network! Well, anyway, it works now!

Okay, small update
I am connected to GTalk now, and I can send messages (no code pointers btw). However, I'm unable to receive them. My collegue sends them to me, but I receive no text at all....

Where do you specify

talk.google.com

I am working with IntelliJ 5 and I don't see any config settings
available from the IdeaTalk window.
