I have been given an assignment to write a simple socket based chat server/client application. The client applet needs to connect to the server app on startup, the server needs to be able to deal with multiple clients, with no limit on the number of clients, and the hostname/IP address of the server must not be hardcoded into the client.
My main problem is that I am not sure where to start on the server!!
Any links or help that you could provide me with would be extermely helpful...thanks in advance!!
