// Forward declarations
class MimeMessage;

 * The base class of chat applications, such as file transfer and meetings.
 * This class only provide the essentials like accept/cancel notifications.
 * External users of this class only have to use the start() and gotMessage()
 * methods. The start() method causes KMess to send an invitation, and the
 * messages received after that should be passed to the gotMessage() method.
 * The gotMessage() method also detects whether KMess received an invitation.
 * The following paragraphs are worth reading if you're a new KMess developer:
 * To support both MSN4 "Mime-style" and MSN6 "P2P-style" invitations,
 * two classes derive from this base class: The MimeApplication and
 * P2PApplication class. Those two classes implement the missing
 * gotMessage() and sendCancelMessage() methods.
 * To implement your own application handler (like file transfers,
 * voice and webcam conversations), create a new class which derives
 * from either 'MimeApplication' or 'P2PApplication' and implements the
 * contactStarted* and userStarted* methods.
 * The contactStarted* methods provide a framework to implement the nessesairy
 * dialogs for sessions started by the other contact ("chat buddy").
 * The userStarted* methods provide a framework to implement the nessesairy
 * dialogs for sessions started by the user itself ("KMess user")
 * Also note how each Application subclass implements a "static QString getAppId()"
 * method to return the Application GUID. This GUID is used in the invitation message.
