Need help in creating Chat (Java applet)

I'm trying to create a simple-to-use java IRC applet, since the users will be mainly business personels, I need a really user friendly GUI.

The users probably wouldn't know how the IRC function, therefore buttons like "Create Room", "Private message user", etc needs to be created for commands like /query, /join. I also require a logging feature that would log all private and channel messages, perhaps creating a txt file in the server (usernick#channelName-date.log) or store in a database.

I'm not experienced in java programming that requires socket connections(?). Are there any (detailed)tutorials or suitable Open source chat applet that I could refer to? I've tried applets like PJIRC but there's just too many things and it's confusing.

Urgent. Thanks in advance.

If you're able to use any of the ones TNC provides, then by all means do so.  Re-inventing the wheel is only interesting for the first few days... after that it gets painful.  Parachat is a proven solution.

But, if you're hell-bent on rolling your own, here's where I'd start.  In general, the online Java tutorial has plenty of info you'll find useful:

The "Bingo" application is a full-blown client/server application that'll show you the in's & out's of socket programming.  If you're sure you want to write an applet, see the 'Writing Applets' trail....  Check out the 'Custom Networking' trail as well for a full explaination of the networking details.
