A simple Chat program in Java

This page contains a simple chat client written in Java. It connects to a server, which can be written in any language (current server is written in Perl), and act like a multi-user chat program. Every line that you type in the TextField is sent to the server, and everything the server sends is displayed in the TextArea.

Click 'Connect' to connect to the chat server.

NB. Won't work unless the chat-server is running on the web server computer.

Java seems to be turned off.
