Learn how to use and build extensions for Google Wave, the exciting new real-time communication and collaboration technology that unifies email, instant messaging (IM), wiki, and social networking functions in one integrated platform. With this book, you'll quickly learn about the Google Wave Client and how to use Google Wave's APIs to extend the platform and customize its functions and display.

Judging by the enthusiastic response this technology received since it was unveiled at the Google I/O web developer conference, Google Wave will gain millions of early adopters and organizations in a short time -- more than a million users have already requested access to the public preview. Google Wave: Up and Running will give you a good look at this platform, and show you how to build sophisticated extensions for it. Why wait? Get in on the first wave with this book.

  • Become thoroughly familiar with Google Wave, including its key concepts and terminology

  • Learn through use cases how Google Wave offers consumers a distinct advantage over current communication and collaboration technologies

  • Get a hands-on introduction to the APIs, protocols, and resources that will help you develop on this platform

  • Learn how to develop key extensions (robots and gadgets), and how to embed waves, using Google Wave's APIs

This book is still in progress, but you can get going on this technology through our Rough Cuts edition, which lets you read the manuscript as it's being written , either online or via PDF.
