[ProgSoc] Java Socket Question ..
This Question is for java guru's.
I have an applet that uses a standard socket (java.net.socket). that
connects to a unix server.
I need to know how to determine when the server side hangs up.
It is possible to determine if the socket has problems, by trying to
read from the input stream, if a EOF is received then I assume the socket
is closed. However I dont want to periodically read from the input
stream, just to check whether the socket is up. If I try this using
buffered data channel, I lose my position and everything that is waiting
for to be read, after the check.
Anyone have any ideas of how to determine whether a socket is closed.
