Overview

JBuddy Messenger Pro is a cross-service, cross-platform enterprise IM client for J2SE compliant Java enabled PCs, Macs and devices. JBuddy Messenger Pro supports AIM, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Lotus Sametime, Jabber, and Zion's JBuddy Message Server on all the major operating systems including Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, OS/2, etc. Mo< Future enhancements of JBuddy Messenger Pro are already in development to provide a rich set of enterprise IM features.

first off i'll give some props to the developer because making an app like this is very hard. however personally i don't like this app. it doesn't look like a Mac application in any way shape of form. mac apps do not have the menu bar at the top of the window, they have them at the top of the screen. if you're going to take the time to make the app on os x make it look and feel like the user is using a mac os x app.

Wow, man. Wow. Sounds just like Adium with a $30 price tag! Why, oh, why would a OS X user use Java over a Cocoa application?

I haven't used this app, but to answer your question about why using Java over Cocoa. Cross-platform, plain and simple. Some may want to stick to one interface on all OS's that they use, especially in a cross-platform work environment.

This application is supported commercially. That means companies can purchase licenses and deploy and get support, updates, etc. Some companies are willing to pay for that. In addition, JBuddy Messenger Pro uses the STComm.jar library available from IBM which means it's officially blessed by IBM for Lotus Sametime connectivity. Adium uses an open source library called 'meanwhile' which can't claim this. In addition JBuddy Messenger Pro runs on nearly any reasonable operating system with similar look and feel. Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, etc.

It was NOT designed for the Mac from the ground up. You have to realize that Java applications are meant to be cross platform. Because of this functionality you will lose the inherent beauty of native applications, especially OSX. If the author were to make it pretty it would no longer be a cross platform application.

a good developer would have code to detect the environment the app is running in, and change it to work accordingly. i have personally developed java apps that have a menu bar at the top of the screen, so i can vouch that the code is pretty trivial... the best apps are the ones with attention to such detail :)

newer versions beginning with 1.1.0524 include technology that makes JBuddy Messenger Pro look a lot more native on the Mac including the brushed metal look.
