I'm making a chat application using sockets..
as soon as a client is connected to the server the client is added to the list of online user...
So i have a server that has a list of all client and client information... My question is how do I pass the list of online users (the clients), to all clients(online users)? do i make a class that implements Serializable interface that and that encapsulate the online user information... and then it end it thru the ObjectInput/OutputStreams?
Wat?

Hi
Try using Multicast Sockets.
