If this is really going to be used on thousands of sites, you'll
probably need to develop the same widget in many different languages
so as to offer users a choice. Not everyone can or is willing to run
the same language(s) on their web server, (e.g., some will be able to
use Java, some won't want that, some will like a Perl client, some
won't, etc.). So I think it is best to identify your requirements and
then pick a few languages to use that can meet all of those

BTW, OpenWire and Stomp are protocols that are utilized by the various
languages, they're not languages in and of themselves. That being
said, the OpenWire protocol is implemented in C/C++, Java and .NET
whereas the Stomp protocol is implemented by all the supported
languages including the scripting languages. OpenWire can handle
binary data whereas Stomp cannot. Do you need to send binary data? If
so, then you'll need to use one of the OpenWire clients. If not, then
you can use any of the Stomp clients.
