In our application,We are thinking to develop a project implementing networking (socket programming) and multi threading…

Is it possible to develop a chat application with the following requirements:
1) number of clients need to communicate with the server
2) number of experts need to communicate with the server(many-to-one).
3) the server has to exchange the messages(text, voice, video) between connected clients and experts(LIVE SUPPORT) (one-to-one).
4) Further the experts must view the connected clients list in their frame ..

…Is it possible to achieve this requirement using these technologies……….. If no, then which technology do you think supports the requirement???
Thanking you in advance !!!

As I posted in your previous topic, you are a little vague in your requirements. Is there a difference between "clients" and "experts"? What does it matter to the application in question?
In any case, did you look at the link I posted? It answers most of your questions.
