    Default Simple serverless chat solution

    Hey All,

    I'm looking for an easy way to chat java-application to java-application. I want to integrate it into my own program, it doesn't have to be fancy. I don't need emoticons or buddy lists, just a way to send text back and forth between two IP adresses. Anyone? Thanks!

    You won't be able to create an absolute server-less solution (as far as I know). One of the users will have to act as the server, and the other user will connect to them as the client.

    This involves having to know IP addresses, but you could also set up your own server that runs all the time, and just let them connect to that, but that isn't what you want :(

    Hopefully someone else can come up with a better solution!

    Either both or one of your ip address needs to initiate ServerSocket and listen to other so as they could connect to each other. If ip is preknown you dont need third server to connect.
    dont worry newbie, we got you covered.
