Odigo IM for Java - but does it work in eCS

Odigo IM for Java - but does it work in eCS?

Again I was surfing on the Internet and checked up on the web site. It seems they have changed their site around a little and now have a version of Odigo for Java. Odigo has always been a company that stands for open standards so there is a good chance it will work. Just for people that don't know, Odigo is just like ICQ or AOL IM.

The Odigo Express Messenger is a web-based instant messaging application that allows users to send instant messages directly from any web browser to the users of any registered Odigo Messenger (desktop, web or WAP-based client). Odigo Express enables users to quickly access their Friend's Lists (which is synchronized to the Friend's List on the desktop messenger) and send messages from any computer, without having to download the full desktop messenger.


Odigo Express is a lightweight applet (200k), using minimal run-time memory, which provides a high-speed instant messaging experience. The applet is a scaled down version of the desktop client, though it maintains the stylish user interface characteristic of Odigo. Odigo Express supports the following core messaging functions:

  • Secure login via an HTML page
  • Friends/Group list display (with online and offline presence detection),
  • Friend's List synchronized to the desktop client
  • Message sending and receiving to over 2 million Odigo users
  • Accept/decline incoming Friend Request
  • User Details Cards on an HTML page
  • Search by interest
  • Find users by name, nickname and email
  • Ignore user list
  • Tell-a-friend
  • Provides fast web registration on an HTML page
  • HTML-based help
  • 120x60 ad panel

I'm not sure if it works yet in eCS but if some people would try and post their results on the eCS forums, it would help everyone out. They list alot of OS supported but the Java version but not eCS (or OS/2). If it works we could Email them and get our OS posted and, better yet, supported. It would really be great to have a native version of this program since Odigo can "talk" to other IM such as ICQ, AOL IM, and Yahoo! Messenger.

You can post your findings here in the eCS Forums.

You can get the Java version here.
