hi frienz!
1. I would like to know about how to develop a chat application using RMI and Servlets.
2. I would like to know the advantages of developing such an application over a chat application developed using an applet as a client and a server using sockets.
Kris.

What a coincidence, one of the permutations of a chat application in my book uses RMI and servlets. It works just fine.
Advantages over the applet approach - your client does not have to download an applet, any browser will work. With the actual chat application running as a separate process that the servlet talks to with RMI, your chat could include other clients that are not linked by HTTP.
