hi, I am working on a chat application. I am using sockets.Since sockets cant bypass firewalls we were advised to use Http Tunnelling. In my perspective,Its nothing but the client has to establish an URLConnection with the server and then creating o/p and i/p streams. But our problem is in chat when there is a need for the server to send messages to the client , how does he identify the client? Or should the client poll in intervals to get the messages from the server? What happens if the data income is very frequent? Please give a neat solution. thanks, bhuvana..
