I am developing a chat application using Applet and servlet. i wanted to clear my doubts and also tell me what are the features that can be included to make the chat different from othere chat programs.
Can we create a servlet with a infinite loop so that it can be used as a server to the chat application and broadcast or send a private message to the members in the chat room??? Tell me whether its a good idea!!!
Can we make a servlet to run for ever??? Is there any free hosting web site available to host my application???
Any features that can we implement in this chat program to make a difference???
