S is the central server A,B,C,D are the 4 players
Intially the token is at A
A starts 3 threads and sends the messages to B,C,D and moves the token to B
the acknowledgements are monitored by the central server S in the que buffer in the order in which they are received  from B,C,D and the response in written at A in a string buffer  which it receives from the central server S
when the token is at B it starts 2 threads sending messagesa to C,D and moves the token to C and the the acknowledgements are monitored by the central server S in the que buffer in the order in which they are received from C,D and the response in written at B in a string buffer which it receives from the central server S
when the token is at C it starts 1 thread sending messagesa to D and moves the token to D and the the acknowledgements are monitored by the central server S in the que buffer in the order in which they are received from D and the response in written at C in  a string buffer which it receives from the central server S
when the token is at D it is done
This is the implementation of the token ring algorithm and the central server is used only for receiving the acknowlegements in order at the player
The sends are done asychronously and the receives are done using threads

The threads must also use a distributed  mutual exclusion algorithm  in order to collect the messages in the single array buffer .Implement the central server algorithm using a separate thread

I think you'll get more positive responses if you break the question down.. We can't write a whole program for you..

However, I'm guessing you have some java experience, right?

Also, anything else, either search for it at: www.javaalmanac.com, or java.sun.com

Or, if it's a more direct question, of course, just ask it here. :)

My doubt is how to send the response from the reciever to the central server  where a queue is available  which will return the reply to the sender in a single array buffer
