Use Java Servlets
Any example on generic servlet will help you

You don't need a servlet for this; a java server will do the job.

Basicaly you have to create a server that listens on a port. When a new client connect you will have to create a client object which keep also the port number the clients has connected, its nick and whatever you need and put the client in a list. Any incomming message is then sent by going throught the list and calling a client.sendMessage() method. You must take care of the nickname to be unique in the list, so you can use the nick as an ID in order to know each message's source.

As I saw you are a java programmer so you will not have problem in creating a java server. With the rest I can give you more details if you need.
