how to add chat service to my site

Hi, I want to add a chatroom to my website. I need the chatroom to block swearings and kick users that use bad language. Where can I get java code for chatrooms? I know how to program in java, c, but I'm not expert. Any reference would be great,

thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    There are many chat programs readily available, which you can put on your site and use. But first of all, do you really want a Java chat room? That'd mean that your target is limited to users with Java-enabled browsers, and that too will take a little while (usually) to load. It is always recommended to use a chat room that allows users to choose between Java version or plain HTML version of chat.

    Also, what backend platform are you working on? Does your server support CGI/PHP/Perl (required for HTML chat) ? If yes, then there are *lots* of programs freely available for chat, and I can give you my recommendations here.

    Also, if your server supports JSP (Java Server Pages), then there is an excellent chat program (free for non-commercial sites) available at http://www.javazoom.net/jzservlets/jchatbox/jchatbox.html

    Reply back if you want a pure Java chat program only...or your server supports PHP/Perl,etc. I have tried out some of the good ones on these platforms... :)
