    There are dozens of posts here on the forum with client/server code.
    Do a search for ServerSocket or client-server for some examples.

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with Jabber.
    It depends on what you want. If you want to learn network programming with sockets or if you want to learn how to use some one else's code.

    I'm not sure what you mean when you say IM.
    Are you talking about building your own system (a typical student project)
    or are you talking about connecting into an existing IM system?

    It depends on what your objective is. Are you trying to write a standalone system or connect to an existing one?
    Take a look at Jabber. Will you be able to use that in your project?

    I hope building a stand alone will be tough job.... Connecting to an existing one wil be very much suitable for my mini project.... for that can we use java without any this else

    Sorry, I have no idea how hard it would be to connect to an existing one.
    Perhaps Jabber will do it all for you. Set up a GUI, and call a few methods ...
