Im thinking about paying someone to make a java chat room for me ( i know there's free one's out there but i need custom button in the java applet and other features) i would try to learn java but it would take way to long to learn it.. so my question is... how much would it cost to pay some one to build a custom chat from in java?

i was thinking about doing something like that but someone told me that java is some what like C and C++, and the only thing i know how to program real good is javascript

I originally only knew JavaScript and was taught Java in my first year at the University. It's better than nothing because, in essence, they all use similar syntax anyway. Though, there are some major differences, considering JavaScript is actually a renamed version of Netscape's LiveScript (to take advantage of the hype Java had at the time) and has nothing to do with Java.

The nifty thing about Java is that all of the major functionality is contained within the giant API, which is documented very well. So, once you grasp classes and scope (not hard if you have previous programming experience), you've pretty much nailed the language.

Of course, if you have no experience with Java whatsoever, I wouldn't suggest making this your first project. It's always best to start from the beginning and work your way up, making more complicated projects as you go along, when you're learning a new language.

You mentioned something about this to me earlier. Maybe if you explain your requirements a bit better, somebody could point you in the right direction.
I am going to start learning java but have no idea where to start, is there a book, tutor, or something in that nature that you know of? To explain what I'm trying to do a little bit better... What i want is a chat room... on the right hand site of the chat box there will be a list of everyone in the room. when you right click on one of the name it have the options of private chat,view current active Pokémon,stats,request friendship (or something like that) and challenge player and at the bottom a text box where they enter there comments, and some where don't know where I'm going to but it but a friend list. and when you click on them it will open a new window (with what ever there trying to do). i know that is alot of work (at least the chat part, i would think). hope that helps you understand what I'm trying to do
