You've got two possible approaches.
The first one is to develop a servlet/JSP page which refreshes every now and then (using HTML headers).
The second one is to develop an applet (delivered along with a HTML response), which talks with a centralized chat server.
I would suggest the latter one, as the responsiveness is much better and the implementation is easier as you're not tied to the basic HTTP request-response communication.
