Chat Server

Service Description

A chat server is a virtual location where many instant messenger applications can talk to each other.
Messages that arrive in a chat room are broadcast to all other people in the room. In other words, all messages are seen by all users. This means when a message arrives at our server application, the user's address will be added to a list. Then the message will be sent to all users in that list.

Additionally, you could implement "commands." A command begins with a forward slash (/) and is not broadcast, but instead is processed by the server itself for special features. The commands implemented are:

  • /join: Silently enter a chat room without broadcasting anything.
  • /who: Print the list of all users in this chat room.
  • /quit: Leave the chat room; no more messages will come in.

How to play with it

Starts Two SIP Chat Clients. Point them to sip:just4fun@127.0.0.1:5080
Type your message and then click on the send button

You should see the messages in both clients once they are both in the chat server (that is when they sent at least one message to it).
