Dear all,

I'm writing a Java program to send a vector through TCP socket. On client side, user can click a button "Send" to send a vector to server side without limitation (means allow to click many times). On the server side, receive the vector and store into database. In my case, it's work when the first clicking on client side, however, the content of vector on server side is unchange no matter click the button how many times on client side...it seems only received the first vector sent by client...
any expert know why and how to solve it? Thanks a lot !

Code as follows:
<Client side--method call in the button>

//dout = new DataOutputStream( socket.getOutputStream() );
//oos = new ObjectOutputStream(dout);
protected void sendRecord (Vector vr){
      try {
                oos.writeObject(vr);
                oos.flush();                
     } catch( IOException ie ) {    System.out.println( ie );}
}


<Sever side>

public void run() {
                 try{
             din =new DataInputStream(socket.getInputStream());
             ois = new ObjectInputStream(din);

             while (true) {
                  try{
                                v1 = (Vector) ois.readObject();
                                System.out.println("Vector to string :" + v1.toString());
                  }catch (IOException ioe){      break;      }
                   catch (IOException ee) {      break;      }
                   catch (ClassNotFoundException cnfe){      break;      }
              }
                 } catch( EOFException ie ) { }
                    catch (IOException ee) { }
}

<Server Output when click the button on client side>
Vector to string : [abc, cde] // Input abc & cde and add into vector on client side
Vector to string : [abc, cde] // Input xyz & opq and add into vector on client side
Vector to string : [abc, cde] // Input nothing
.............

I think it is cos the you are not reading from the socket afresh. You are re-reading what has already been fetched from the dataInputStream.

Try this:
In the try inside the while, include the data fetching from the socket
while(true){
try{
 din =new DataInputStream(socket.getInputStream());
  ois = new ObjectInputStream(din);
  v1 = (Vector) ois.readObject();
  System.out.println("Vector to string :" + v1.toString());
....

Thanks Jaax, i tried before and exception occur (I think it's because using different input stream).
In fact, i have tried to send a string object instead of vector and result is fine. Code as follows:

<Client side>
protected void sendRecord (String recs){
      try {
                oos.writeObject(recs);
                oos.flush();                
     } catch( IOException ie ) {    System.out.println( ie );}
}

<Server side>
....
while (true) {
                  try{
                                recInString = (String) ois.readObject();
                                System.out.println("String :" + recInString);
                  }catch (IOException ioe){      break;      }
.....

<Server Output when click the button on client side>
String : abc_cde  // Input abc_cde on client side
String : xyz_opq  // Input xyz_opq on client side

Don't know why it's not work when using vector....

create a copy of the vector and send to the server!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ksivananth, do you mean i need revise the code on client side as follows:

<Client side>
//Vector v2 = new Vector();
protected void sendRecord (Vector vr){
     this.v2.clear();    
     this.v2 = vr;
      try {
                oos.writeObject(v2);
                oos.flush();                
     } catch( IOException ie ) {    System.out.println( ie );}
}

Tried and same result...
I print the result on client side and output is fine always.
Anyway, thanks.

try this,

protected void sendRecord (Vector vr){
     Vector v2 = new Vector() ;
    Enumeration e = vr.elements();
    while( e.hasMoreElements() ) v2.addElement( e.nextElement() );
      try {
                oos.writeObject(v2);
                oos.flush();                
     } catch( IOException ie ) {    System.out.println( ie );}
}
