I need to send a instant message from one computer to another through the internet. For example. Computer A (the sender) and Computer B (the reciever). 'A' will be at a webpage with textfields and a "Send" button, 'B' will be waiting(listening) at another specific webpage. 'A' will enter stuff into the textfield and click the Send button and 'B' will recieve it ( via a popup/dialog? applet? ).

This is basically a one way messaging, 'B' does not need to have any means of reply. Is this possible with JSP? If so, what is the simplest way in implementing this, authentication aside.

For one way of doing this...

Or at least my suggestion ;-)

Do you still want a simple JSP way ?  
Or are you going with an applet  (I saw your recent questions) ?

I've already done the JSP.. now I need a chat applet with a really simple GUI..maybe a textarea to display messages.. textfield for inputs and a JList for the nick list and buttons for certain functions like ignore/join room etc.

Looked everywhere for a free customisable one but to avail (some are too fancy and others are commercial). I need a simple GUI to fit into the theme of my web app written in ASP(ya kno.. the usual grey windows GUI)

Hope someone can help ^^~
