X –This system is extensible meaning it is designed to be expanded and extended as user needs change.
M – This is the part of the program that is visible, with M signifying Message (Instant Message) between users. This app ensures that your message will be sent and received in real time with none of the delays experienced by other software.
P – This part of the program lets you know if the users are offline, online or busy, i.e. it shows the presence of the users.
P – This stands for protocol which put simply, are the commands (standards) that allow this program to be used for real time messaging.
