Enter chat room for this bid request
(0 active users at Sep 29, 2003 3:09:40 AM EDT)

the chat program code is provided already. You will need to email me once the deal is done. You will have access to my email address (will be given to you by the web site). So you need to email me and ask me to provide you the code so that you can modify it.

As you can read below there are two tasks. The first task is the easier one and that is the main one that i want to be done. The second one is a bit more difficult and it may be alright if you won't have time to do it.

You will only have 1 day to do it and if you are good at java it is going to be enough time for you. I could do it myself but because of workload i cant do it at the moment.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember time is of essence. I have no way to extend the deadline. It is just not in my control. It needs to be done by the deadline, or else it is of no use to me.

Task: Write a “Chat Room” program that allows several people to chat, by modifying a given sample chat program.
1. The sample chat program is placed on our subject&'s website. Compile the codes and run it in terms of the following instructions.
1) Run the Chat Server class:
java ChatServer 9830
2) There is a HTML file that contents an applet tag. Please change the host IP number to your local machine IP number. If you are using a PC, do not change it.
3) Open the Chat.html in an Internet browser. If it does not open, try to use appletviewer to open it. (Chat.html is the client window)
4) Same as the previous step - open the Chat.html in another window.
5) Start a chat.
2. Your first task is to modify the sample chat codes such that the new program satisfies the following requirements:
· Add a textbox that allows a user to enter his/her name and an OK button that registers the user with the server.
· Add a textbox (or a list box) that shows the names of people currently in the chat room. When a user joins, his/her name will show in the textbox. When a user leaves, the user should be removed from the textbox.
· During a chat, the name of the talker should be automatically placed in font of his/her words.
3.You need to modify your program to create a new program enabling multiple chat rooms. The client window now has a button for creating a chat room and a list of names of chat rooms created by users. Once a chat room is created, it will remain on the server and is able to use by Internet users. Each user can now choose his/her chat room for a chat by clicking on one of names of the existing chat rooms. The GUI and the codes should be modified in terms of the following instruction:
· The client window contains now a button and a textbox (or a list box)
- Button: when it is clicked, a dialog box pops up asking you to enter the name of the chat room. Clicking on OK button on the dialog box, you create a new chat room. The name of the created chat room is then placed in the textbox (or the list box) viewable/useable by all Internet users who are currently using your chat program.
- Textbox (or list box): Once a chat room is listed in the textbox, it becomes available for all Internet users. When a user clicks on a name of chat room, a chat window pops up. This window is similar to the one you have done for your first task. It should be a frame containing the name of the chat room, a big textbox allowing users to type in their messages, a textbox allowing the user to type in his/her name, a list of current users in the chat room. If a user tries to create a chat room that has the same name of an existing chat room, he/she should be warned and is asked to use a different name.

I'd be happy to code this for you! I'm a very experienced Java programmer and I'm confident I can deliver the code for you today. I have written a lot of programs that work with sockets in Java and actually even a Chat applet. I always write my code very clear and easy to understand. I will also of course make it fully commented. Please accept my bid as soon as possible and I'll start working at once!
Best regards,

Can you reply to me with the source so I can take a look at it? If it seems easy maybe I can make you a better bid. Please reply as soon as possible since it's not a lot of time to do this project.
Hope to hear from you soon
