I developed a client server based java networking Instant Messaging app. The client program is needed to be run on the client computer whereas the server program is on server computer. This works in my local wi-fi network(Home network). But i want this one to deploy on internet using some servers and so,so that my friend who is in another city can run the client program from there. Would it be possible for me to do this? I tried to learn heroku techniques for java but its hard for me to understand.

Yes, it's completely possible.
All you need is to run your server program on a computer that your client can connect to. For example that could be your own computer if you configure your router/firewalls to make it accessible from the web, or you could use a commercial hosting service.
