Hi,
I would like to know, which of these technologies is best for writing a chat application.
Sockets, Servlets, RMI.
If possible, i would like to know the reason behind that.
I hope i find a solution for my query.
Bye.
Loke.

All have advantages and disadvantages. It depends on the environment that the program will run, for example if it is intranet then I would suggest -sockets. If it is internet then I would suggest servlets cause socket connections are not accepted by firewalls by default. I hope this gives you a hint to get started.
