Writing a Java chat server and client...

I want to write my own Java chat server and client applet, but I am not sure how to do this.  Where could I find some source code examples of how to do this and some documentation?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm about to finish coding a chat server a few days ago. I can send you code if you like. Send e-mail to netlearn@ceng.metu.edu.tr . The source code is free. It has some nice features like seeing channel logs, even the logs when you're not logged in and a built-in e-mail sender.
ps: the only thing not implemented is to kick a user from channel but it's child's toy ;)
