Please suggest way to build watsapp like chat application.
In My Android application i have to put Chat Functionality
I already knows following ways.
There are various methods to develop chat application.
HTTP connection (In this method each and everytime you want to send message, you have to call the webservice and for receive message, you continously need to call the webservice using Timer).
XMPP Server (
XMPP server uses Socket programming, so once a connection will be establish, then it uses that connection each and everytime, you no need to create connection everytime, like
GCM (Using Push Notification you can send and receive messages as well).
