    hi, i would like to know does crossplatform allows file sharing?
    lets say i'm doing a crossplatform chat(linux & windows) using JAVA language.

    Can file sharing be implemented in this kind of chats? Any proft to support this?

    Yes it's definately possible. Just open a socket and send the data from the file through, or whatever connection routines you are using.

    Normal Java will do. You say you're doing a chat app? Haven't you allready encountered sockets?? You can use streams with the sockets, look into it that way.
