    Default using socket and JSP for chatting

    I am new to JSP !! and I'm developing a web-based chatting system using JSP and socket.

    The problem i am facing is that the sender can send message but on the receiver side we have to manually refresh the page. The sender stays into blocking mode until the receiver refresh its page !
    after that i've implemented auto-refresh on the receiver side and "Connection Refused" exception is generated.
    I know this technique is not optimal , so please guide me regarding this matter.

    Thanks !

    First: one thing is to use HTTP, web pages and possibly timed/auto-refresh of the page to implement a "chat" system (this approach is used by many chats offered by companies on the web for the customer-care). In this case sockets are unuseful/not necessary.
    All another thing is to implement a chat using a "custom" protocol (choosen by you) with sockets at TCP level on any port you like.

    So please, clarify the scenario and your expectations.
