P: 28
Hi !
I am working on linux platform.
I have some problem with sockets.I want to communicate with a C machine through sockets.

I find few problems in it.
The way i am creating socket in my jsp file is:


ServerSocket MyServer;
Socket Mysocket;
File file = new File("/home/sait9/rama/TomcatJSPExample/web/file1.txt");
//getting data from file to send to C -program
FileInputStream fis = null;
BufferedInputStream bis = null;
DataInputStream dis = null;
DataOutputStream dos=null;


int port = Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("port1"));//port to sent to C-pro
MyServer =new ServerSocket(port);
Mysocket = MyServer.accept();
fis = new FileInputStream(file);
bis = new BufferedInputStream(fis);
dis = new DataInputStream(bis);
dos=new DataOutputStream(Mysocket.getOutputStream());
while (dis.available() != 0)

catch(Exception e)

System.out.println("Encountered an error!!!!"+e);

Here i have two problems,

1.)I am unable to use the same port if i want to run it once again(im getting it as done in the browser).

2.)All the values from the file are not being sent C-program.I mean sometimes i can get all the values and some time half &some times nothing or one byte.why so...............

I must get the values perfectly dumped to C program all the times.How could I.

PLz! reply me soon.I am near to the dead line..

It is working but i could not recieve values at c-program every time i reload it.And even i need to change the ports when i reload it.

to my understanding
the c program is running on a different machine
this c program gives the port at which it will listen this is passed to the jsp
the jsp then sends the data to the c program
is this correct.
