Since then Google Wave is one of Google’s biggest and most ambitious project but failed since it’s complexity just for a real-time messaging tool.
This new internet communication platform which developed using Java with OpenJDK and Google Webtoolkit as the User interface engine, will no longer support by the Google Inc.
