Hello friends, I am working on a project where i have to develop a chat for a web site. Can anyone help me in what are the requirements to write a chat applet, i.e what is the logic behind that. Do i need a chat server to write a chat? if yes , then can i write my own chat server or i have to download or purchase from elsewhere. I'll be very thankful to u all. Thanx again Afroz
Hi, As u wanted the logic I am sending the steps that are very important .You can write the code and if you have any problem you can ask me or mail me . I am not sending the code as I feel developing the application urself improves the skills of the persone and will also help u to know more of java Server -------- 1)Create a server socket using the serversocket class of 2)Assign a port to it 3)accept the data from the client . this port should be continuously lisenting to the port so it should be in a while loop 4)store the details in the hash table of the new user 5)read the entire list and send the message recieved from each the client. Client ------- 1)Make use of socket. Pass paramater to it (ie the ip address and the port on which the server is listening ). 2)Create a thread for the client class as the client should recieve what ever is send from the client
