    Default Networking a game

    We've created a game in my java class, but I'm not sure how to network it together to be able to be 2 player.

    Do we need to create something like a client/server similar to like an IM system?

    How would I implement notify() and wait() methods in to this?

    If someone could help me out or direct me the right way that would be awesome.

    It's a battle ship game. I want to figure out how to connect 2 players to one game. Also, we want to have it so 1 player can only make 1 turn at a time, I'm guessing I would use notify() wait() for this. So, each player can only take 1 turn, then wait for the other player to take his.

    You could connect peer-to-peer or use a server for the communications between players. How would one player get the IP address of the other so they could connect?
