    Hello.
    It depends if your application is standalone or web-based.
    If it is stand alone then you can just write two classes. Each class will do both - accept connection from others & initiate connection to others. You can use swings if you want the chat to be gui based.
    If it is a web application then you can use servlets/jsp/webservices.

    The core technology or api you need to use is java socket programming.

    Thanks,
    Syed.

    The list of languages that support "chat" is indeed a long one. Consider other important factors, like the GUI, which I consider one of the most important parts of a project. After all besides correct operation, it is all the user ever sees of the application. Having said that I would choose a language suitable for the overall project, based on what you (or the end user) will feel is important.
    Post some of the specifics for better suggestions.

    If it is gui-based you can use Java.
    It it is text-based you can use C/C++/Java.
    In either case Java would be much easier and faster to accomplish the task. Because it has very simple API.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your answers. The web based chat application i would like to create will have the following features1)users will be able to register using there mobile number, which after, a code will be sent to there mobile number to confirm there mobile number. (2)users will be able to buy credits with the aid of there network operator which they would use to play games and quiz that will earn them more credits, this credit can be used by the user to purchase airtime from the chat application. (3) there will be chat rooms. (4)users can update there statues.(5) users can chat to there friends. (6)users will be able to share videos, photos, credits and friends. (7)there will be a forum in the chat application where users can post topics and other users comment on the topic. (8)there will be a database where i monitor users activites. These and more are what i would like to be in my chat application. I serious need to complete this project in the next six(6) months, i beg u all to help me. Moreover am new to java (a beginner). Just give me a list of all i should learn together with the website i would find and read them. Thanks!

    if you are new to java you going to need more than 6 months....even if you arent new to java youll probably be looking at a lot longer than 6 months with all that stuff in it...youll need a server to host it on and a way to actually sell credits and such and then you have to figure what games youll have on it and are you going to make the games yourself? etc etc etc etc this wont be a small project especially if you are the only one working on it
