The goal of the Relay-IRC project is to create an easy-to-use, multi-platform and scriptable Internet Relay Chat (IRC) chat client and a set of Java classes for adding IRC capabilities to other Java programs.  

The main product of the project is Relay-JFC, shown above.  Relay-JFC is a full-featured IRC chat program that uses the Java Foundation Classes (JFC) to provide a GUI chat experience similar to MIRC.  Relay-JFC is open source software, released under the Mozilla Public License (MPL).
