Using JOscarLib to send AIM message

Posted on 2005-04-05

I'm working on a Java program for sending myself server statistics via ICQ and AIM using the JOscarLib class (  When connecting with ICQ, it works just fine, able to send and recieve messages.  However, when I try connecting the same program to AIM, it can recieve but cannot send.

Using the regular AIM client (and Trillian) I am able to send messages on the AIM network, so I don't believe it is a firewall issue.

Has anyone worked with JOscarLib and had any success sending AIM messages?

All of the documentation and sample programs using JOscarLib that I have found show examples with ICQ but not with AIM, so perhaps there is some step that I am missing.

I also tried JAIM ( but was unable to send with that library as well.

    Never used it but did you try searching in the project forums?

    ack, I could have sworn I checked out the sourceforge forums but found no comments... guess that must have been one of the other projects.

    I was able to track down the fix and get it working, the fix can be found in these posts:

    Thanks for the lead!
