    Server Language

    I am going to be hiring a programmer to create a avatar based chatroom. I would like the client side to be used with any browser without the need to download programs to run the chat, example flash, java. I find using mysql database for chat messages is slow and was wondering is it possible to create a server program to be used to run the chat messages to output in html/ajax? If so what language?

    thanks.

    For starters, I would take a look at nodejs and socket.io. Nodejs was built to make fast applications and socket.io makes realtime apps possible across different browsers and devices. And the language for both is javascript.

    Yes, but in my opinion, using java will require way more work, than javascript server side solution.
