Welcome to the JavaRanch.
What have you used a network for?
Email? You could write a POP client. Peer-to-peer filesharing? How about a Bittorrent client? It will help you with your project if you have an interest in what you are researching and creating.

How would that involve sockets?

There would be a server having the database.Each time a person comes for reservstion we will look for the vacant rooms (Eg: a hotel reservation system) by sending a request to the server.If he makes a reservation we will send the reservation info. back to the server.All this comunication between server and client is done using the sockets.

I happend to find a similar example online ... Does this work???

Oh, so this is a GUI application. Somehow I was picturing a command-line application, and was having trouble visualizing making a reservation using that :-)

Of course, a reservation system would typically be a web app these days, so it's a somewhat unusual use of sockets.

The problem is the idea of yours multiple client chat server is already proposed by other person and i am thinking the peer to peer networking will be a bit complicated ........ so i got to look for a new one .That is why i came up with this idea..I will be happy if you have any other ideas to share..

anyways thank you very much for your concern...

Peer to peer will be impossible in a general sense (meaning if the clients are not all on the same network); you'd have to go with a client/server architecture anyway.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
