So the client should be an applet? You also need a server; a servlet container like Tomcat would do, or you could create a standalone server application (especially if you aren't going to be using HTTP ).

You may want to familiarize yourself with socket communication. Or did you have other ideas about client/server communication?

Gmail chat doesn't use applets; it uses HTML and JavaScript. If that's what you want, start looking into AJAX and the JavaScript XMLHttpRequest object. The JavaScript FAQ has some links around that.
