Description
MsgCommunicator is a native Delphi / C++Builder software development kit (SDK) which was specially designed for the easy creation of custom internet/intranet messenger systems like Mirabilis ICQ, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Jabber, etc. with data compression and strong encryption as well as with other advanced networking technologies.

MsgCommunicator includes methods, properties and events to exchange custom messages of different types like String, Stream and binary buffer with data compression and (optionally) encryption capabilities.

But MsgCommunicator is not just the build-in OS API messages functions replacement with advanced compression, encryption, and network functionality; it provides methods and properties to work with other objects like User's Contact List, User Info, Users database at server, as well as User Goes On-line / Off-Line events and other functionality you need to build a messenger.

MsgCommunicator allows sending/receiving very large objects with progress indicator support. Any number of files/streams can be sent/received simultaneously. Transmitting of files and streams takes no effect on the other command/message data exchange. These objects can be sent directly or thru server despite of their sizes which can be very large. MsgCommunicator enables you to customize network data transmission process for each file/stream independently.

MsgCommunicator is successfully tested with 100,000 simultaneous connections and high load messaging. Each server can theoretically handle up to 231 (over 2 billions) concurrent connections on the single machine (really limited by hardware). MsgCommunicator is a ready solution for building corporative or public internet servers.


Package Contents
================

MsgCommunicator contains MsgClient and MsgServer visual components, MsgCommunicator Manual which icluded Component Reference and Developer's Guide, client, server, and other demos, License Agreement in License.txt file, History Of Changes in History.txt file and general information in ReadMe.txt file.

Accuracer Database Module and MySQL Database Module for MsgCommunicator are available at separate prices. In case you plan to use MySQL Database Module you should also download MsgCommunicator Temporary Table Component via SQLMemTable for free.


Specification
=============

MsgCommunicator enables you to build custom messenger system as easily as it is possible: just place MsgClient component on the form, specify connection parameters (address and port of the server at least) and now you can send messages to any other client.

MsgCommunicator supports both client/server and peer-to-peer modes. The great advantage of client/server technology is an ability to send message to the client which is off-line currently. Also MsgCommunicator allows working without server that enables you to build chat or any other peer-to-peer application fast and easy.

The MsgServer component allows you to build your own messages server to work at your internet server or in your private intranet. MsgServer works with Users database, users' contact lists, executes commands received from clients and send answers to them.

MsgCommunicator is well-documented and specially designed to spare you trouble of coding instant messaging (IM) functionality and to save your development time.

Database Modules
================

Some features of MsgCommunicator are only available with a database module. You can enable message history on the client side as well as on the server side and search for message by its details. Also, user search by user details are available with a database module.

Database module usage brings you a number of benefits:
- Advanced functionality. See above.
- Low memory consumption. You can handle much more clients with the server with limited RAM using database module. MsgCommunicator allows up to 231 (more than 2 billions) simultaneous connections and is successfully tested on 100,000 concurrent connections.
- Faster speed. MsgCommunicator has higher performance under high load in some cases with a database module.
- Convenience. Working with standard database format gives lots of advantages.

With database module MsgCommunicator will store all the data (messages, user database, contact lists, etc.) in an appropriate database format depends on the database module you use. Using Accuracer Database Module, all data is stored in the single database file, and even can be stored in .exe file of your application.

Now the following modules are available:
- Accuracer Database Module
- MySQL Database Module
- DAC for MySQL Database Module

You can download trial versions of database modules to try before purchase.
Do not forget to download MsgCommunicator Temporary Table Component via SQLMemTable in case you plan to use MySQL Database Module.
