Hello, first of all, i�m not pretty sure if i should post it here or in a C forum, so my apologies if i do wrong. I�m trying to communicate a java client and a C server, and it works....almost. While there�s no problem in Java sending messages and C receiveng them properly, the other way doesn�t seem to work. This piece of code shows two ways how i tried to send the information from C back to java: 1) char *cadena; cadena = malloc(sizeof(char)*1024); cadena = Getdata(Buffer,Buffer2, &db); retval = send(msgsock,cadena,sizeof(Buffer2),0); free(cadena); 2) retval = send(msgsock,Getdata(Buffer,Buffer2, &db),sizeof(Buffer2),0);
I don�t get any error message while sending. And here it is how i do receive in java:
and here�s the problem, it prints the message "BEFORE THE IF CLAUSE" but then it seems it never gets to do the readLine, like if it got stuck in that line. The strange thing is that if the C server sends a message like "FROM C TO JAVA", Java receives it fine, but then why it does not the result of the function i need? Would someone point me in the right direction? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I sure would stick to sending bytes in both directions, and don't depend on the Java character conversions that using a Reader and readLine implies. After you have safely received the bytes, you can try to convert to Strings. Also - be sure you are catching and printing any IOException thrown. Bill
