Subject: Newbie XMPP .Net questions
OK, this is my first time here and I ask you to please tolerate my basic questions . . .

I develop Android Phone apps in Java that are supported by my REST server code written in asp.net Web api environment in C#.  I now want to implement a Google Cloud Connection Server (CCS) using XMPP in order to enable communication between my apps.  Since all of my existing server code is at my asp.net servers, I want to write the GCM CSS server in the C# .NET environment instead of Java.

So, I have some initial questions to help me get started using the proper software . . .

1.    It looks like the MatriX XMPP software is out of my price range.  Is the agsXMPP software under the GPL license free of cost? My software sales are at the "Hobby" level at this time.
 
2.    If neither of the SDKs are free, can you recommend a workable free .NET XMPP SDK?

3.    Is using the agsXMPP SDK to write a GCM server a proper, necessary, and workable solution?

4.    Has anyone else already done what I want to do?

Thanks,
Dean

you can use agsXMPP either under the GPL, or a commercial license which exempts you from the GPL. When the GPL license is fine for your project then agsXMPP is free of course.

GCM is XMPP based, so any XMPP library can do the job, so agsXMPP will be fine for that.

I think so ;-)
