The Java collections framework gives
the programmer access to prepackaged
data structures as well as to algorithms
for manipulating them.
When the ServerSocket invokes accept(),
the method does not return until a client
connects. After a client does connect, the
ServerSocket creates a new Socket on an
unspecified port and returns a reference
to this new Socket. A TCP connection
now exists b
Here are following important points to
The try/catch block tries to catch a
ClassNotFoundException, which is
declared by the readObject() method.
For a JVM to be able to deserialize an
object, it must be able to find the
Java Generic methods
classes enable programmers to specify,
with a single method declaration, a set of
related methods, or with a single class
declaration, a set of related types,
Generics also provide compile-time type
How to Use an Iterator ?
Often, you will want to cycle through the
elements in a collection. For example,
you might want to display each element.
The easiest way to do this is to employ
an iterator, which is an object that
implements either the Iterator o

Creates an unconnected socket. Use
the connect() method to connect this
socket to a server.
When the Socket constructor returns, it
does not simply instantiate a Socket
object but it actually attempts to connect

Sockets provide the communication
between two computers
using TCP. A client program creates a
socket on its end of the communication
and attempts to connect that socket to a

Java provides a mechanism, called
object serialization where an object can
be represented as a sequence of bytes
that includes the object's data as well as
the output stream. The SSN field of
the deserialized Employee object is 0.
The term network programming refers to
writing programs that execute across
multiple devices (computers), in which
the devices are all connected to each
other using a network.
The server instantiates a ServerSocket
object, denoting which port number
communication is to occur on.
The server invokes the accept()
method of the ServerSocket class.
This method waits until a client
connects to the server on the given

Similar to the previous constructor,
the InetAddress parameter specifies
the local IP address to bind to. The
InetAddress is used for servers that
