Hi would appreciate some help with this problem
project is --a server messaging system--.and reqirements go like this..
>server should be able to identify it's active clients and send a message
saying it's gona shutdown.
>client receives the popped up message and asks for a period of service
extension and also has the choice to cancel the shutdown process..
>server receives the time sent ,and shutsdown after a maximum of the time.
now i've done it partially which still has some drawbacks..
>using sockets in java,but unable to find the
no.of active clients,
>also server program(socket class) at a time sends and receives from a single
client which is a slow process..
>also each client(has server socket ) has the program and is running all
>for shutdown used a exe file of win98 exitwindows..
can i use java itself for messaging or switch to another language
as visualbasic do let me know as soon as possible..
