I'm looking for myself and others that see this, for good articles or something detailing good design of networking Java applications. there are plenty out there, google turns up tonnes, however many leave much to be desired. So, anyone that has found something on networking they think would be helpful to someone working on multiplayer, from 2 player, to setting up a MMO style, please post here. I've done a little networking, but I've never felt my server/client designs were very good. God knows the code was a mess, and is not something I enjoy trying to read. Thank you.

If you want to do strick socket communication (by far the fastest, but the most development) you'd use Java SocketServer

If you want to use Web Services (SOA) you'd find an article on URL and URLConnection (you'll need a servlet container to help you with this). Web services is also defined as XML + HTTP = Web Services.

I think for Instant Messages you might be able to find some good stuff by searching for Jabber. And the Jabber Server. I'm pretty sure this type of communication is governed by the W3C.

I've worked at length with all of these and found they all have their strengths and weaknesses.

Good luck.
