Hey,

I want to implement a socket based solution for the UrlyBird project.

Therefore I created following simple server (extends Thread):



Every minute I get a SocketTimeoutException (since timeout is 60000 miliseconds) if no client is connected or the client doesn't send anything.

Should I catch this exception in the while-loop, or is there something generally wrong and such an exception shouldn't occur?

Thanks for your help

Why do you use the setSoTimeout?
Clients can connect all day when the server is up, so no need to use a time out?

good point, works now without exception.

I'll let the value to 60 seconds and catch the exception, so it is recognizeable if the server hang up.
