Learn how to use and build extensions for Google Wave, the exciting new real-time communication and collaboration technology that unifies email, instant messaging (IM), wiki, and social networking functions in one integrated platform. With this book, you'll quickly learn about the Google Wave Client and how to use Google Wave's APIs to extend the platform and customize its functions and display.

Google Wave: Up and Running will give you a good look at this platform, and show you how to build sophisticated extensions for it. Why wait? Get in on the first wave with this book.
