* Brief description:
This is a Java-based LysKOM[1] client library. The project focuses on
creating a useful class library making it easy for developers to
create new LysKOM clients in Java.
LysKOM is a conference system with ancient roots. LysKOM is a
relatively new approach to the old-fashioned KOM system, where the
communication is client-server based rather than terminal-based. The
most widely used client today[2] is written in Elisp and run inside
Emacs. LysKOM was created at the Lysator Academic Computer Society[3]
at Linköpings Universitet[4].
This project aims to implement all features of the latest LysKOM
protocol A specification[5].
