    Default Advice on Java personal msg system?

    Hey guy's

    I am working on a java project (website) and was wondering how i would go about implementing a messaging system for registered users of my website.
    If any one could give any insight as to how this can be achieved i would be most grateful.

    Post the message to a file that requires the user to be loggged in to read it, so when they try to access it the server checks to see if they are logged in on the correct username, if they are then allow them to view it, otherwise force them to log in. Of course you would implement automatic checking to see which messages belong to the account the user is currently logged in on and display those, but you would need the first step for privacy reasons.
