Hype – Multicast Messaging Client


This is a Messaging program I made as part of a team. It was made for a 2nd year assignment in Trinity College Dublin.

The Main Features are:

  • Uses UDP Multicast Protocol to transport packages between clients
  • The Program can simulate a noisy network, by dropping packets
  • Has an error correction mechanism, to ‘catch’ dropped messages
  • Users can broadcast audio
  • Users can join and leave an audio broadcast
  • Built in Java, using the open source framework: Processing

The project was completed in 6 weeks, with a team of three.
