I need to know how I would go about coding this to function
properly. The white box on the right is a List, this is where
usernames will appear. The big box is where messages will appear
and the small on where messages will be inputted. Would a MySql
databse + PHP be a good combination to use for user authtencation
and message storage. Have I used the correct elements and code for
my project? Any other critisisms and advice are gladly welcomed.
I Would strongly suggest to use freely available blazeDS when
implementing high performance chat clients, but blazeDS requires
tomcat web application server, as far as I know it does not work
with apache httpd server.
besides UI (which IMHO is least of your concerns) the most
important part is to implement client server communication,
approach that delivers low latency network communication. BlaseDS
can definitely do that, also there is LCDS ES edition whih is
Ibeleive free and also avaialble as apache module if I am not
mistaken. I believe there is something for php as well, but I dont
work with php so don't know, pretty sure guys here know,.
