You guys ever heard about xfire: http://www.xfire.com/xf/index.php? Looks pretty similar to GameSpy. Does anybody have experience with it?

I thought adding it to my game. Any suggestions?

I have good experience with it, it's not like GameSpy that you can actually search for servers.

you should see it more like an gaming orientated IM.

It's harder to read code than to write it. - it's even harder to write readable code.

Is it possible to integrate into a Java game (application and webstart)? How do you do that?

I beleave you have 3 classes of functinality that you can implent

- first beeing that it shows that person x is playing the game, x-fire arranges stats based on that too
- secund beeing one click join. join a server by clicking on the person.
- third is in-game chatting for full-screen apps it uses overlay of some kind to display a simple xfire interface so you don't have to switch back to windows.

it seems that the xfire team is doing all the work, though. http://www.xfire.com/xf/modules.php?name=XFire&file=games the

one click start and stats bit is done by the xml file where you specify the file/process I think not sure how that holds up with java running the jvm and all, you should mail them I beleave they are chatty-er then most.

that's cool  Smiley  however, it seems like the sdk is designed for windows and C/C++ only. would be cool to have a Java SDK as well.
