Reach other JWS users

Hi all.

May be a very silly question: is it possible to send message to all other current running sessions of the same jws application ?

My JWS app runs in an intranet and I want my users to be able to alert each others before one of them have to launch some special tasks.

I know it's possible by phone but I'd prefer through the application !

Any idea on how to implement this (if possible) would be great and helpfull.

No more so than for non-JWS applications. In other words, you could build a chat server into your application if you liked, but JWS doesn't do that for you.
I agree. Here's the link:
