Hello all,
I have written a client/server system which is some way similar to Yahoo Chat. I have written the code for the public chat. I just want to have a private chat facility as well. In the current system the use can see the other online users. It is displyed using a JList. The problems I am having is listed bellow.
1) How to make a window pop up when a message comes to a client from a another client.
2) If the client exits what to do to inform the other client who was having the private chat.
Hope you can understand what I am talking here.
Thank you very much for your time ...
