Thread: Efficient chat system like Meebo

  1. #1

    Efficient chat system like Meebo

    I'm wondering at what is needed to implement realtime chat like Meebo or Gmail. Sure, I can do AJAX calls once per second to query MySQL, won't this use up a ton of bandwidth and disk accessing when you have a few hundred users? What are the correct strategies to implement chat efficiently?

    I'm not sure how Meebo do it, but perhaps you'd want something like this: http://directwebremoting.org/dwr/rev...jax/index.html

    An intellectual carrot!
    If it were me, I'd consider utilizing flash and sockets to do this. It would save your bandwidth... and last I heard, Flash was already installed on something like 97% of the browsers out there, so that's not really a concern anymore either.
