Hello Everyone,
I want to create an instant messenger in Java like Yahoo messenger but I don't know from where to start. Do I have to use RMI or it can be done without it?
If anyone has done anything similar please...please.. help or send me some sample source code.

You might be better off studying a complete open-source Java messaging system such as Jabber, available from http://www.jabber.org/ . Check it out!
