6.18 Sockets.ServerSocket

Defined in namespace Sockets
Superclass: Sockets.AbstractSocket
Category: Sockets-Streams

This class models server side sockets. The basic model is that the server socket is created and bound to some well known port. It then listens for and accepts connections. At that point the client and server sockets are ready to communicate with one another utilizing whatever application layer protocol they desire.

As with the other AbstractSocket subclasses, most instance methods of this class simply redirect their calls to an implementation class.
