[xmlblaster] XMLBlaster vs Jabber

We are planning to use XMLBlaster to share state police incidents with other state agencies. The incidents are represented by XML messages (specifically, the CAP protocol). Some have suggested that XMLBlaster is the wrong way to go and that Jabber (XMPP) should be used instead. Their primary reasoning is that XMLBlaster has "failed to gain the support, following and independent implementations necessary for it to become a standard or even documented in an informational RFC." Yet what XMLBlaster does provide is a ready system with the features we need to develop with. I would be very much interested in hearing how some might respond to the implication that XMLBlaster represents "effectively a proprietary solution". I would also be interested in any information of how XMLBlaster (or its users) are participating in standards efforts.

Thanks in advance,
