Babylon Java Chat is a client and server combo that allows groups to chat and draw over the Internet or local networks. The client can be used as a stand alone Javav application, or as an applet, which ,akes it simple to embed chat functionaloity in WWW documents. It features multi-colored graphics drawing ability, including freehand, lines, rectangles, ovals, and fonted text up to 120 pts. Users can interact publicly with everyone else on the server, or they can chat/draw privately useing the "whisper" mode. The server will store and manage answering machine style messages for users who aren't online, and users who aren't watching their screens can be paged. In theory one server is capacble of supporting any number of users. The Babylon chat server is normally operated in its GUI mode, but for convenience it can also be run as just a text-based application.
