Google Wave API - How To

Google Wave is a product that helps users communicate and collaborate on the web. A "wave" is equal parts conversation and document, where users can almost instantly communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Google Wave is also a platform with a rich set of open APIs that allow developers to embed waves in other web services and to build extensions that work inside waves. The Embed API is a simple Javascript API, the Gadgets API is a JavaScript API, and the Robots API is a JSON-RPC protocol. All robots must run on App Engine at this time, and can use the official Python or Java SDKs, as well as various third-party client libraries in other languages.
