    Default one java progarm handle two socket connection

    Hi,
    I need to write a java program handle two sockect connection A ,B .
    So, in normal case ,one connection , the program will read data from connection and process it .
    Then read data from connection again and process it .
    Work like a while loop .

    But if I need to handle two socket connection ,how can I write in one program .
    Apart from read data from A ,process it , then read data from B , process it .
    work like A ,B ,A,B sequential .

    Any other method I can write in this program to handle two connection.
    As, it is not promised that there are data in the connection , sometime there are no data in the message queue of the two connection .


    Please advice ...

    Is the program to work as a server or as a client?
    You can use more than one ServerSocket or Socket statement in your program.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I understand I can creat more than one socket connection .
    but how can I read the data from socket connection .
    If I have A,B connection , so, I read A , then B ,then A ,then B ..
    Apart from this , any interrupt method , so, if there is data in connection A , it can call the read function auto ????
    Please mention more detailed for your suggestion

    When the Socket connects you can get I/O streams from the socket object and read from that. Look at the API doc for the methods to get the streams.

    Do a search for code that uses Sockets.

    When a method that is receiving input over a socket gets data, it could call another method and pass it the input it received.
