Hi!

I am starting a project that involves the creation of an online chess game. I've been reading a lot during the last few days about online games and java 2d libraries, but I would like to know about the existance of well proved frameworks or libraries made to develop java games and online communication between users.

Also i would like some advise about the best approach to mantain communication between users: client-server , using a master server, peer-to-peer, hybrid, etc.

Thanks in advance

Hey Raul,

I think that the more you tell us about what you've designed so far the more feedback you'll get. You've asked us all some very open-ended questions!

hth,

Bert
