Im trying to find out how chat systems work. Im currently trying to develop one for my web site. I have created a program that simulates this using a ServerSocket for my servet program, and creating a socket for the client program. Problem is that there can only be one ServerSocket. I was thinking that I could create the ServerSocket with a servlet, but there can only be one. Then I heard of JSP which I still know very little about. I would appriciate if anyone could help me on this matter. If you could just tell me the basic steps on creating a chat system using java, and/or tell me of any good books. Thanks Terry

Hey Terry,
O'Reilly's book on Servlets by Jason Hunter has a chapter to developing a chat system with Servlets. I think it's just what you're looking for, and it's a very good book.
