Hello everyone,
I am designing one website in which I want to build one chatting application. My problem is in which technology chat application will be develop like jsp, servlet and spring and how to start to develop chat application. I heard about RMI so using RMI it is possible to build chat application or any other way to build chat or any logic

You could use XMPP. Check out Spring Integration in Action or the Apress book on Spring Integration, both books have examples.

RMI is obsolete. What's more, it implies Java on the client, whereas you probably want to build something using web technologies - an HTML/JavaScript client that uses AJAX/JSON to communicate with a chat server.

I suggest to have a look at Node.js and Netty project from JBoss.
I agree. Here's the link:
