ABNet is a java communications client/server that turns a single-user VRML or X3D world into a multi-user virtual world environment. 3D avatars can interact and use shared events to provide a virtual experience similar to Secondlife and the Blaxxun platform. More generally, the communication framework of ABNet provides an asynchronous low-latency publish and subscribe environment using XML messages over TCP/IP.
Starting with version 2.0, the ABNet server is available for download. You can now run your own private 3d chat site. Also new, is a small 132k ActiveX client. The ActiveX client takes the place of the Java applet and provides a low latency async communication channel. Your users don't need to have Java installed.
ABNet is the software that powers http://vrmlworld.net/ the gateway to many vrml and x3d worlds.
ABNet is free for non-commercial and educational environments. You can purchase an unlimited user, single domain commercial license for $2000 USD. For other uses please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
