Hi Hema,

Is it necessary for you to do this using Applets? You'll face some security restrictions while doing that in Applets, for which you might need to sign the Applet.

Is this supposed to be something used over the Internet or just within a LAN?

How much experienced are you in Java programming and what's your experience with sockets?

If you're a beginner, you should go through:

You can build the UI in Swing. Prefer to use something like JFrame, JEditorPane, etc and not applets.

You'll need to look into sockets.

If you want to use a DB for storing user-information, you should look into the tutorial for JDBC as well:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Have a look at the related examples as well.

The server will need to be multi-threaded:

A good place to start with a server and a client is: http://www.cn-java.com/download/data/book/socket_chat.pdf

For some reason the domain is giving a Forbidden error.  If you see that, try again later and it should be up.  It is a very good resource and helped me out immensely in getting my java chat application off the ground.
