Via my CNET News.com Alerts i received an email titled :
So I immediatly thought about a Video application created with new Central AOL IM SDK instead I read that the video application was developed under the program known as ICQ Xtraz.
ICQ enables you to conduct simple and easy to use Video chat sessions.
What is the ICQ Xtraz API ?
The ICQ Xtraz API is a development platform that enables developers and businesses alike to create new and innovative features that can be seamlessly integrated into the ICQ 4 client. Currently the Xtraz API is available to developers or businesses who wish to partner with ICQ.
ICQ Xtraz are web-based features that are seamlessly integrated into ICQ 4.
An ICQ Xtraz feature that you create, as an ICQ partner, will be hosted on your site, and under certain limitations will be controlled and managed by you - so design, security and other aspects of your application or service, can be easily managed.
In order to develop ICQ Xtraz features, you will need access to the development platform, the ICQ Xtraz API. Currently the Xtraz API is only made available to individual developers or businesses that partners with ICQ.
The article end with this sentence :
"Central has yet to generate significant interest among developers, however, who have expressed concerns about usefulness and licensing terms."
