read the following section to do more integration work.

Full Integration Works You Should Do?
=====================================
* Deploy your own XMPP server
* Integrate your plone site with your XMPP server
- users integration
- friends mechanism
- SSO
- ...

* Configure anz.ijabbar
- login in as site administrator
- goes to ZMI and enter {your site url}/portal_properties/anz_ijabbar_properties
- configure as your situation

Installation
============
To install anz.ijabbar into the global Python environment (or a workingenv),
using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

* When you're reading this you have probably already run
``easy_install anz.ijabbar``. Find out how to install setuptools
(and EasyInstall) here:
http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall

* Create a file called ``anz.ijabbar-configure.zcml`` in the
``/path/to/instance/etc/package-includes`` directory. The file
should only contain this::

<include package="anz.ijabbar" />


Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance
recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

* Add ``anz.ijabbar`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

[buildout]
...
eggs =
...
anz.ijabbar

* Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

[instance]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
...
zcml =
anz.ijabbar

* Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

$ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package
from another package's configure.zcml file.

In Plone just add "anz.ijabbar" product with quick_installer, or install "anz.ijabbar"
by portal_setup.

ToDo
====
* More documentations about integrate anz.ijabbar with your XMPP server.
* Implement a 'friends mechanism', to let you only add your friends to your IM network.
* SSO support.
