BabbleNet is an XML-based communication protocol and real time chat application that IBM describes as "a cross between Gnutella and Internet Relay Chat". BabbleNet's P2P modular framework and multicast peer location protocol allow decentralized, ad hoc chat networks to be constructed by users without connecting to or involving a centralized server. Users may also edit a babblenet.properties file to create private subnets. BabbleNet supports all Java platforms. The distribution is free for non-commercial and lawful use under the terms of an IBM alphaWorks License Agreement.
