    Angry Sending anything other than a .txt file through socket causes the file to be corrupt

    I'm sending an image of about 800 kB through a socket server to a client,

    This is the server code I'm using:

            try
            {
                File myfile = new File("oeh.jpg");
     
     
                byte [] data = new byte[(int)myfile.length()];
                BufferedInputStream in = new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(myfile));
     
     
                in.read(data);
     
                out = socket.getOutputStream();
                out.write(data);
                out.flush();

    When I check the amount of bytes in windows, it's a perfect match, what am I doing wrong here?

    Photoshop is telling me:

    "Could not complete your request because the JPEG marker segment length is too short, the file may be truncated or incomplete"

    Sending a rar also causes the file header to be corrupt

    read(byte[] b) : "Reads some number of bytes from the input stream and stores them into the buffer array b."
    Some bytes != all bytes.
    use read(byte[] b, int off, int len) , where off = 0 and len is your file len.

    Never mind, I fixed it by using DataInputStream and DataOutputStream
