I made this project because I wanted to explore Java and its networking aspect
What it does
The app establishes the connection between the clients and the server locally and allows the multiple clients to chat with each other through a single server.
How we built it
We used Socket.io, Java GUI, Swing component library, JFrame and various other Java components.
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge was to set up the GUI window but we conquered it.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our first major Java project
What we learned
We learned the basic aspects of networking, explored Java GUI and various other Java components.
What's next for Chat Application
We will try connect it to back end and host it live.
