Java Socket Programming: Build a Chat Application
What you'll learn
- Understand Socket Programming in Java
- Write simple Client-Server Applications in Java
- Build a multi-user GUI Chat Application in Java
- Basic knowledge of Java is required
Socket programming is used for developing client-server applications in Java. In client-server architecture, the server provides some service and the client can use this service to get the desired output or result. Sockets also allow two or more computers to communicate with each other over the network using TCP/IP protocol.
This course is for anyone who has basic knowledge about core Java concepts and who is totally new to Java socket programming. This course may not be suitable for students/programmers who are not familiar with Java.
This course is going to teach you how to write client-server applications in Java using socket programming. It will also teach you how to write a multi-user/group chat application in Java with chat logging functionality. All the concepts are explained in a very simple language. This course is highly practical-based with a very few power-point presentations. Apart from socket programming, this course also gives you a short introduction to some of the Java concepts which are required for understanding our chat application. This chat application will give you a concrete understanding of all socket programming fundamentals.
And finally, a chat application could be a good topic for your school/college mini-project. It is also an area which is quite unique to work on rather than regular Java projects. As it’s a short course, it wont be boring at all. You need to invest only around 2 hours of your time.
I believe you will enjoy this course and learn a lot. Happy Coding :)

I have around 7 years of professional working experience. My area of expertise is Java.
I have completed my Bachelor’s in Computer Science and a Master’s in Computer Applications from a reputed institute.
I am currently working in a leading financial firm as a Senior Full Stack Developer.
Ever since I started coding, I have done a lot of projects in various technologies like C++, HTML/CSS, Angular, PHP, Java, Spring Framework, Struts, JSF etc.
Since my college days, I used to help out my friends with a lot of programming concepts and with time I realized that I was actually enjoying teaching. And so I decided to take my teaching passion to the next level and share my knowledge with as many people as possible with this platform.
