Help Me Plz
You're going to need to implement something called a "remote listener" or "RMI callback" to do this. Someone else asked about this a few days ago, and that thread has a link to an example and further descriptions of this concept.
Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
I have a nice simple example of a chat app (server and client) using Sockets. The problem is that it's about 350 lines of code (including comments (which are in Spanish but I'm not going to translate them)).
For more complicated communication beyond 2 person chat, you can use one of the APIs that work on top of RMI, such as Java Message Service, Jini or JavaSpaces. Bill
