for the interaction and performance of a chat room i would choose for java,
php is stateless and therefore it's not easy to see when a user is logged in
or out or anything like that..
with the help of JAVA it's possible to build fairly easy an client and a
server class which does the communication for you.. PHP is not really the
thing to build chat appplications in..
