Hi, I missed out a word "about", in my previous post, so I am correcting it now. I want to develop 2 chat systems, one based on TCP & the other based on UDP. I have heard that JAVA wud be great for this. But since I don't know much "about" either a chat system nor the JAVA APIs for such a system, can somebody give me some insights. Thanks a lot for your time.

Hi vikram You may want to explore the java.net package for your purpose . Moreover you will have to explore the Socket and ServerSocket class in the java.net package to build a proper messaging chat system. By this way you can implement TCP. I don't know what do you want to build another application using UDP when Socket would solve the purpose. hope this helps
