JSP are used only for HTTP connections which the servlet container controls.

There is no intersection between the world of JSP and the world of socket programming.

Thanks for the reply.
I am creating a chat application where users can communicate in group. So what is the way that more than 2 people would communicate. In short, I want to exchange information between two or more sessions. So what is the way to achieve it. thanks.

Since we are in a Servlets forum, I assume you want your clients to be using browsers. Questions about building chat systems with HTTP and browsers have come up frequently in this forum so do a search.

IF you are not talking browsers as clients, then a message service would be a reasonable core.

In general, before you write ANY code, make lots of diagrams showing how chat messages and chatting clients are handled - this should clarify what you need to program.
