Creating different Websocket Chat Clients in Java

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Having written two articles about different websocket based chat server implementations in Java, I was recently asked how an implementation of the client side would look like in Java.

That’s why I added this article to demonstrate how to create a websocket chat client applications within a few steps with the Java API for Websocket.

In the following tutorial, we’re going to write a text-based chat client for the console first and afterwards we’re going to program a chat client with a graphical user interface, implemented in JavaFX.
