Iam trying to load applet which calls servlet for a random number.
When i run my applet iam getting an error message as follows:
Error inflating object: java.io.StreamCorruptedException: Caught EOFException wh

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?
Please answer to my question....
I also posted a topic two days back for which i did not get any reply.
I expect some positive response this time.

Could you possibly post a short snippet of code from your applet showing how you are receiving the information from the servlet and a corresponding piece of code from the servlet side?

Here is my applet code:
public Integer getNumberFromServlet() {
URL url = null;
// Create the URL
String urlStr = "http://localhost:8080/servlet/RandomServlet";
url = new URL( urlStr + "?");
} catch( MalformedURLException e) {
System.out.println(" URL: " + e.toString());
return null;
// Open the stream -- this starts the service() method in the servlet
InputStream inStream = null;
inStream = url.openStream();
} catch( IOException e){
System.out.println("RandomApplet Exception: " + e.toString());
return null;
// Get random number...
Integer randomnum = null;
// Inflage Random number Object
randomnum =
(Integer) inflate( inStream);
return randomnum;
Object inflate( InputStream in){
Object obj = null;

ObjectInputStream objIn = new ObjectInputStream( in);
obj = objIn.readObject();
} catch( IOException e){
System.out.println("Error inflating object: " + e + " " + e.getMessage());
} catch( ClassNotFoundException e){
System.out.println("Error finding class: " + e.getMessage());
return obj;
And my servlet code is:
public void service(javax.servlet.ServletRequest req,javax.servlet.ServletResponse res) throws IOException, ServletException
// Create the output stream for communicating with the Applet
FilterOutputStream objOut = new FilterOutputStream( res.getOutputStream());
byte[] errorDeflatedExam = null;
ServletContext context = getServletContext();
if (context != null) {
context.log("LOG:ReqInfoServlet:service START");
Integer randomnum= rangen.getRandomVal();
// Get a deflated random number Object
byte[] aDeflatedRandomNumber = (byte[]) buildDeflatedRandomNumber(randomnum);
//Write it to the applet
private byte[] buildDeflatedRandomNumber(Integer aint)
//Long randomnum= rangen.getRandomVal();
// Deflate the object to an output stream
ObjectOutputStream objOut = null;
ByteArrayOutputStream bOut = null;
try {
bOut = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
objOut = new ObjectOutputStream(bOut);
} catch (java.io.IOException e) {
return null;
return bOut.toByteArray();

Thanks for the response.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
