I'm setting up a game server (tanbo.com) and I'm looking for general advice. I will be using servlets and html forms. I need advice on program architecture, security, thread safety, persistance, etc.
It's a two player board game (Tanbo - similar to Go). I think one board should be sufficient, with a waiting list. Also there ought to be a chat window.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
