Mohd Zawawi, Rafidah (2007) The development of the FTMSK local instant messenger (FTMSK messenger) / Rafidah Binti Mohd Zawawi. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


The project is about developing a local FTMSK instant messenger that called
FTMSK Messenger that will be used as one of the communication channel mainly in the
discussion environment between students and lecturers of FTMSK. As instant messenger
become one of the most preferable communication channel, the development of this local
instant messenger hopefully will benefits the students and lecturers of FTMSK. There are
some problems arise when we use other communication technology such as email and
SMS service in which both cannot provide fastest response. The use of instant messenger
will give us the fastest responses because it has the ability to show the status of other
person who we want to communicate. The use of instant messenger will also reduce some
cost such as the cost of sending the SMS. Other than that, by using the local instant
messenger, it will reduce the possibilities of the internet security threats because the
messenger will not connected to the internet instead connected locally. This messenger
includes features such as connection to a server (client server architecture) by using the
socket programming technology, registers new users (login), get the status or the
availability of person, chatting (exchanging text messages), and participation on a
conference. The use of java programming supports functionality including client/server
communication through socket programming helps in developing this local instant
messenger. The methodology used in developing the instant messenger is the system
development life cycle (SDLC) consists of five stages which are project planning,
analysis and requirement, design, development and testing.
