Hey, everybody. I'm writing a chat server and client, and I've noticed that whenever I just shut down the client, the server throws an error, but no functionality is affected. In fact, if it weren't for the fact that I have the CLI for the server open whenever I'm running it, I wouldn't have noticed this at all. Is this even worth the time to fix? If so, how would I do that? I'm using plain Sockets, by the way.

Good practice would be to catch the exception, log the fact that the client disconnected and clean up any resources in use.
