Applet ssechat

provides a simple chat interface for a web user.

if the chat is not enabled, the applet will shut down.
Otherwise it will present a entry field for the users nick name.
Once this nickname is known, the applet will show chat entries, a textbox to enter text, a send button and a start/stop button.

The applet requests new chat lines every 5 seconds and immediately after sending text.

The applet will time out after 2 minutes. Clicking on the Start button it can be restarted. If a user keeps typing text, it won't time out.

<param name="baseref" value="http://localhost:8080">
  if set, the applet will send requests to that location.

 Java Applets can only request content from the server they were loaded from
