Intelligent Instant Messaging: Collaborate Productively

I’m glad to tell you that JetBrains and Jive Software have partnered to launch the free hosted service to help IntelliJ IDEA users to take advantage of the IntelliJ IDEA built-in collaboration feature, that lets you see the presence of co-workers, send code-pointers, view one another’s source files, etc.
Just select server while registering your “new Jabber account” from inside IntelliJ IDEA IDETalk and you’ll get a new account on the Intellijoin Wildfire server. This will allow you to collaborate with anyone on the federated XMPP network (including Gmail contacts).

    What does that buy anyone except JetBrains and Jive? Can’t anyone with GMail account collaborate already?

    As far as I see, the main advantage of registering the account at is that you are getting your communication through the server running Wildfire and so benefit from its features. You can find more details about Wildfire at

    As I said, all the details about the Wildfire server are available at Jive Web site, so you can probably find the answer there.

    I tried, but haven’t find anything really useful. Along with your answer it really look like just a promotional trick… So, if you know anything, please share with your users.

    IntelliJ IDETalk works fine both with this server and any other server you want to communicate through, so it’s purely your personal option what server you choose. I want to also clarify that yes, this is partnership promotion, without any tricks. Since the IntelliJoin server is dedicated to IntelliJ IDEA you may look into the future for the features providing for more effective collaboration from within IntelliJ IDEA.

    I am trying to set up Wildfire locally to use as a Jabber host for our company, where we are using IDETalk in IDEA 6.0. However, when users log into Wildfire, they cannot see each other in IDETalk, unless they enter specific users’ ID’s to make them appear. Is it possible to configure wildfire and/or IDETalk so all online users show up automatically when someone logs in? I already looked at the wildfire website, but am no closer to a solution.

    Matthew, for the Wildfire configuration issues, please contact the Jive Software Support.
    If the problem is concerned with IntelliJ IDEA itself, the JetBrains support team will be glad to help you.
