We need someone to reverse engineer the skype protocol, we need IM, Presence and chat to be supported. This should all be done via a Java library and should support the new NIO/Selectors based methods available in Java 5. This is to include the protocol such as IM, Chat, Statuses, add buddy, remove buddy, etc. No need for voice chat capabilities.
Please not that we are not looking for what skype already provides with the simple automation api they provide, that is of no use for us at this point. we need someone to basically reverse engineer this whole process.
Only serious Java developers here!
