This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I write Server-client socket program. Run it on two different pc.
If i keep running Server side & client side program restart many times then after that server program not receive frame.
For that i cross verify by Wireshark application, i can see frame receive in wireshark but in server program console nothing happen.
here i post both programs.
here i not post what is contain in frame exactly. but in simple way it contains few int, short, string.
In wireshark cross verify & find some differences as bellow:-
1. Coloring Rule String
3. Header Checksum
4. Source port
5. in Transmission Control Protocol info Flag :- 0x19(FIN, PSH, ACK) in Not Ok frame & in ok frame its
Flag : 0x18 (PSH,ACK)
6. checksum : 0xc81a( correct) in Ok frame & in not ok frame
checksum : 0xc24f( correct)
If i restart server side java program & then try to send same frame from client program then it immediately receive in program.
Now my question is if i can see frame in wireshark then why not in java program?
1 more thing i want to share that in client side program
byte buffer is 100 byte but it contain only 58 byte actual.
today i will check whole thing by keeping accurate value for byte buffer size. but theoretically byte buffer size should not affect on working of server side program.
If i get clue/suggestion/solution/help then it will be helpful for me.
Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton asked why.
1) You don't need that server != null check on line 17 of your server code since you are assigning a new instance just the previous line.
2) I am not sure you need the isBound check either.
But neither of these are the problems from what I can understand of that code.
Two thing that you should note about that server code is:
1) You are doing blocking calls (like read) on the same thread as accepting new client connections. This can be a problem if the client tries to connect to the server and the server is already busy reading some data from some other connected client.
2) When you shutdown the client it can potentially trigger a IOException on the server side if it was in the middle of some blocking call like read. In your code that catch is outside the while(true) loop which means that the code which is meant to accept new connections (in that while loop) will no longer run. I think this is what is happening in your current case.
Edit: Having said all of that and then thinking a bit more, I don't see how the client will even be able to establish a connection in such cases when the server side socket isn't accepting the connection. The easiest way to really figure out what's going on is to take a thread dump of the server side code when the client tries to send some data after restart and see what's going on.
