Hi everyone. I'm a 200l computer science student new to java though but have a good foundation in C++. For a long vac we r expected to go to industry for training and alongside go back with 1 professional Exam. I decided to write SCJP which I have started studying for. My questions are is it really possible to prepare for SCJP exam in a month+? secondaly I have been giving a project in my place of work to design an intranet messenger that would not have to work with a mail server or any server. I have seen a lot of intranet messenger that just automatically search the network for the computer on it n you begin to chat immediately, I love this but they r all trial version n besides I'll love the messenger to bear the name of my company n work on all system in the network. I have 3 weeks left and I'm yet to get something done. Pls help me out. All I just need is the simplest type of source code n how to compile them. pls how do I go about this

Femi,

Yes it is, however you might not get a high score.

secondaly I have been giving a project in my place of work to design an intranet messenger that would not have to work with a mail server or any server.

Although I am not an expert in RMI, from my experience, you might be able to do it using sockets or RMI. You don't need to run any servers, you only need the JVM, and then you can use it to run RMI server.

Hi Femi,

I have moved this discussion to the "Sockets and Internet Protocols" forum. You may find that using the "search facility on this site may help you find similar topics from the past (e.g. "Instant Messenger" and peer to peer commnication").

I would recommend that you post your ideas then ask people for comments. In general people seem to be more willing to help others when the original poster appears to be working towards a solution.

You can now find this topic here.

Regards, Andrew
