I have a doubt in ServerSocket programming,

I have two clients, Lets say ClientA, ClientB and a ServerSocket program(port opened ex :port no.4545

My Question is

Can ClientB only sends message to Server?
Can ClientA only receive message from Server?

Now Server has to do the following

1. Receive message from ClientA (behind some process )
2. Send that processed message to ClientB.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Socket communication is generally two-way communication. As long as a client is connected to the server, both sides can send and receive. Furthermore, if the server is properly multi-threaded, then both clients A and B can do so at the same time.
