We are working on an application Service provding project.
If somebody requires our service,they will be registering their detail in our site page.As soon as they registers,their request will be updated to our database.By that time,in the server side,
admin should be noticed by raising up window kind of things
in the windows status bar ..(Examples MSN Messenger,YahooMesgr)How can I do that ? any examples..
or referal sites..If so please let me know at the earliest..

Can't you just send an email instead?
If you really need to send messages using ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, or a similar application, you will need to find a Java API to do this. I just did a quick web search and was not able to find anything like that, but that does not mean it does not exist. In the worst case, you could try to figure out the protocol (not sure if this is published anywhere) and write your own interface, but that might be too complicated. Personally, I would just use email...
I agree. Here's the link:
