I have been trying to make a multi player game using java. I currently running a web site and websitesource is my host. I have managed to simulate a chat on my system. What I need to know is how I can run the server side of the program on the server? Im hoping I can develope everything using java. Also, if you know of any books, or any sites that might help me please let me know. Thanks Terry

Seems to me that depends on what your host server will let you run. Servlets and JSP would be ideal, but a game is going to be a lot more complex than a chat system.

Ya I know its going to be more complicated than just a chat system. I still need to creat a database to keep track of each user, a chat room needs to be created. But getting information from one user to the other is a good beginning. I figure it will half to be multi-thread application. Which I used to simulate the chat system on my computer. Each time some one connects to the server, a seperate thread would start for that user. My host does not support JSP it support ASP. If anyone knows of a host that might be better for what im trying to do, or if there are any good books that I should get let me know. Thanks Terry
