          Then do it the same way, but use Java.

            Greetings,

            I am looking to develop a multiplayer online card game and need some help getting started. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Also, looking for a partner or two to help design and develop the game. Let me know if you are interested.

                  Kapil_Rajak,

                  Specific questions usually yield a lot better results than very broad open-ended questions.

                    It is deftaly posible to have java online games and the api for it comes with java. You deftaly should not have php involded in the mix unless there is somthing very hacky going on.

                    As for MySQL, hosting and hardware that all depends on what you are making and how you implement it.

                    Some info on networking in java: [http://tinyurl.com/yjt7mkf|http://tinyurl.com/yjt7mkf]

                    You deftaly want to look in to the sockets part.

                    If you're interested in java MMOs or any kind of online games for that matter, i would also recommend taking a look at [Project Darkstar|http://tinyurl.com/ylnlre6] . It provides all the infrastructure you need to implement networked games. You just have to implement the code. don't forget to read their faqs.

                    Regards.
                    Andy

                      That would be an excellent suggestion, but I don't see how you would every create an MMO tic-tac-toe ;) Shame though, the name rhymes so nicely.
