Hello friends,
I am working on a project where i have to develop a chat for a web site. Can anyone help me in what are the requirements to write a chat applet, i.e what is the logic behind that.
Do i need a chat server to write a chat? if yes , then can i write my own chat server or i have to download or purchase from elsewhere.
I'll be very thankful to u all.
Thanx again

hi, yes you can write your own server that listens on a port and write the clients as applets that communicate with the server.
I can send you sample code of both if you want.
