Is there a good Open Source Chat Room program out there? Preferably one that is running on JAVA?

Im looking to install (and host) a chat room for my web site.  I would prefer one that runs on JAVA so I can conserve my resources.   Are there any leading Open Source chat room programs?

If it were I, I'd write to each developer and ask for a list of sites that are using their software, and then go try each one out. I'd also download each one that looks interesting and test them.
