There is two way that applet communicate with server. First, applet communicate with server by new server port. And the other way is communication by web port such as 80. Basically it setted as first way, but you can use second way when it is not permitted by any reason such as firewall.
"Java-script", "Live Connection" and "Applet" were used to make chipchat.
Currently it supports several functions.
This program is tested on only Tomcat. Tested internet browser is "MSIE 6.0", "Mozilla 1.7", "Netscape 7.1" and "Opera 7.51" on "Windows 2000".
Caution) If applet cmmunicate with web port. You have to take care of server.xml file in tomcat. In this file, "maxProcessors" attribute has special mean in chipchat. If this value is 75. It means that maximun number of client users who can connect server is 74 at the same time.
And "connectionTimeout" value must greater than '15000'. If this value is lower than 15000. Connection will be broken.
