Hi! I want to ask you guys some things, i hope you can be patient with me and help me :D;
Thanks in Advance.


I want to do a simple, very very very very simple Chat Java Program. But i didnt actually learn Socket very well. So i was thinking in maybe, using an API to do that, while my College dont teach me Sockets.
I have knowledge in others API, and JavaFX, which im learning with a book and with this forum.

So i am capable of learning and researching in internet.

I saw an API IRC, and i was wondering if its possible to do a chat like that in java using that API !

Anyone can give me a hand ? I used MSN api before, it worked but, its not actually what i want.

Thanks guys.

Java Rules!

    You mean an IRC API?
    With that you could make an irc client, but it's probably not what you want either.

    Maybe you should just read up on sockets?
