The main objective of the Orkut using java project is to allow the users to communicate (or chat) with each other. This project is a mini project. Hence, it includes only basic features of the real orkut website. The users can access this website through internet.
When a user runs ORKUT project, then orkut homepage will appear. This home page contains many features such as two label fields, two text fields and two buttons. User name and password are two text fields, where the user can enter his username and password respectively. Login and New user are two buttons.
If the user is a new one then he will hit the ‘new user’ button. Then, register frame will be displayed. The traditional orkut home page with the photos of creators of orkut project is displayed on left side of this page. Here, he can provide his details and can register to this website. After successful registration, he can login to this system. Then, he can communicate with his friends. The existing user can type his username and password and hit the login button. If username and password match with the database values then his homepage will be displayed. If they are not matching, then ‘login failed’ frame will be displayed.
This project works on LAN. So, it is available only to few people having a connection to their local network. If a person wants to use this project, then he should have the necessary software and hardware installed. By using Java language, we developed this project. The interested users should have proper version of JDK installed. We can’t put this module on the internet as this is not a website and it is not done using HTML. This project is developed using java programming language and we can’t the applets.
The real orkut is more widely used as anybody having an internet connection can use it easily. The real orkut don’t require any particular hardware or software requirements. It requires a PC with internet connection. This orkut project is localized. But, people living in any part of the world can communicate with each other using real orkut website.
