Using Jabber to connect CF to Yahoo! (or AIM or MSN)

Boyzoid's Blog - The ramblings of a self-professed idiot.: "One of the coolest new features of ColdFusion MX 7 is event gateways. Event gateways allow two-way communication with users through channels other than web pages, such as IM or SMS. ColdFusion MX 7 comes with seven pre-configured 'gateway types'. Unfortunately, none of these will allow you to communicate with the bigger IM hosts such as AIM, Yahoo! or MSN. ColdFusion does gives you the ability to add gateway types, but for those of us who are Java-challenged (like myself), this may not be a viable option. I have found another way."
