I have made a general chat application using JSP & Servlets. Now i am making an additional one-to-one chat module in my application.
So if you could please give me a suggestion about this one-to-one chat module ie ,how to make it possible that when i send one message which should be personaly viewed by intended user, it gets displayed on the intended users window .
Temporary i have written the servlet code for sending the message by the user who wants it to be received by the intended user using a simple textfield & send button & i am successful in sending the message ie on the JSP side I'm getting the message printed with the sender's name.
Now how to approach for making the intended user receive the message personally on his own window/page if he is chatting with me(for e.g).
My whole user interface has been made using HTML & JSP code inside it.
Thanking you, Jignesh
