SoapBox SDK Studio is the only fully documented, multi-platform SDK (Software Development Kit) for integrating XMPP-based communications into existing applications and building .NET XMPP apps that can be deployed to a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Pocket PC, Smartphone and Flash. Soapbox SDK Studio is:
- Easy to use
Development time is streamlined with over 50 code samples and 1000 pages of technical documentation and training. Built-in tracing supports effective debugging and application management.
The Right Tools for the Job!
More than 50 Code Samples
SoapBox SDK Studio 2012 comes with more than 50 code examples, including a fully functional desktop sample client, a fully functional mobile client, an alerting Windows service, a fully functional web client, and file transfer.
SoapBox SDK Studio 2012 provides more than 1000 pages of technical documentation about how to use the Studio. The reference documentation is done in the same MSDN style documentation so developers are already familiar with it.
SoapBox SDK Studio 2012 comes with built-in trace that allows you to look at the detailed inner workings of SoapBox Framework. This can be very helpful in analyzing live user activity, debugging, and monitoring of live solutions. This lowers the total cost of ownership while increasing developer productivity.
Windows Performance Counters are heavily integrated into SoapBox SDK Studio 2012. This improves developer productivity, reduces debugging, and reduces maintenance time on deployed applications. Overall it results in a lower total cost of ownership while increasing developer productivity.
Support for Developers from Developers
Collaborate with Coversant on your project. It is our belief that developers can’t write code for 8 hours a day every day and that developers need to be in touch with customer needs. For this reason we have our developers provide support to our customers.

This document is intended for Architects delving into the options and possibilities offered by the SoapBox Platform, and for Software Engineers looking to implement their own SoapBox Server User Manager.Developers intending to build their own User Manager should be familiar with Object Oriented development practices, multi-threaded code, XML, and have an overall familiarity with the SoapBox Server.
This document is intended for Architects delving into the options and possibilities offered by the SoapBox Platform, and for Software Engineers looking to implement their own custom packets.Developers intending to build their own packets must be familiar with Object Oriented development practices, multi‐threaded code, and XML.In addition to the various .Net technologies, it’s critical that developers have a solid understanding of how XMPP works. Knowledge of protocol requirements for Presence, IQ, and Message packets, as well as an understanding of the basic workflow for packets in terms of XMPP is key.
