I have to make chat for website that has around 10 000 users (small
social network). So before I start, I would like to hear different
opinions. Important thing is to have in mind that in one moment you
can have over 1 000 users using chat.

I did that for a site for my buddy... i tried a few different ways, and
the current way seems to work decently... but i've been thinking about
what i did for that one, is it inserts into a database what the person
wrote, then on eth other side, it pulls every x seconds from the db, and
using ajax adds to the<div>. it is a pain in the ass, but yeah, it
works. I also had a flag for "typing" indicator.
i am sure there are many different ways to do this, but posting to a db,
and pulling from the db seemed to be the logical way to do it when i did
that... my buddies old way of doing it, is at http://radiokaos.com
it just posts to the db, and then refreshed the iframe every 20 seconds
I use an Openfire server with the Smack client. Its really simple, well
documented and works really well.
