6.2 Sockets.AbstractSocketImpl

Defined in namespace Sockets
Superclass: FileDescriptor
Category: Sockets-Protocols

This abstract class serves as the parent class for socket implementations. The implementation class serves an intermediary to routines that perform the actual socket operations. It hides the buffering and blocking behavior of the Socket classes.

A default implementation is provided by each address family, but this can be changed by class methods on SocketAddress sublcasses.
