Google Wave software engineer Alex North told in a blog post that the Wave team is planning to release 'Wave in a Box,' a complete package of Wave server and client software.
The new Wave in a Box is expected to be an open source code and will expand upon on the existing 200,000-plus lines of code already available at waveprotocol.org.
The Wave in a Box will allow developers and businesses to run their own Wave servers and clients using their own hardware. It will also has the application bundle, supporting real-time collaboration between servers and clients, a Wave panel for threaded conversations in the client, persistent Wave storage and search capabilities, improved client-server protocols, support for gadget, robot, and data APIs, and support for both Wave data importation and Wave federation.
Google Wave, the online software application which was described as a new web application for real-time communication and collaboration, was launched by Google in May 2009. But Wave didn't get the user adoption they desired and Google announced the termination on Wednesday, Aug 4, 2010.
