i hav this applet which has

Quote:
init ()
{
//interface codings
}
void actionPerformed()
{
if (e.getActionCommand=="Host")
{
// i wanted to create serverSocket here but it just seems to be hang here, listening connection, and i couldnt click on any GUI component
}
elseif (e.getActionCommand=="Join")
// so as happen to this after i hav created socket.
}


and how am i suppose to write the socket code??
in order to let the server always listen client, and able to send msg to client
same goes to client, always listen to server, and able to send msg to server

my source's at : http://www.geocities.com/giasens/JavaBingo.zip

A call to accept() on ServerSocket is blocking, i.e. since you're doing it in your UI code, it WILL make your applet appear to hang.

What exactly are you trying to do?

Put it in a loop. Use threads.

>> same goes to client, always listen to server, and able to send msg to server

Same thing goes there.

>> but it just seems to be hang here, listening connection, and i couldnt click on any GUI component

I guess your Applet would also need to be signed if you want it to communicate remotely.
