I have written an client application with Swing interface, that reads and writes some data to MySQL database. Next to this database, on the server side, I need some kind of server that will send some messages to the clients, considering users logged on the client side. I mean when some message is intended for some user, this message to be send only to this user.
So, what kind of server do I need? RMI Server, something like servlet, or something else?
I'm not so familiar with server side technologies, that's way I'm asking you.
In my poor opinion RMI server is the best solution for me. But it will support some kind of multitasking... I suppose?!?! How to do this?
Also, I will appreciate some cool articles, related to my problem.
Thanks in advance!
