Socket Programming

This is a sample program that uses socket class to make a chat application, by this you can create a Server and a Client in two Emulator and chat to write and read data.

Underlying Algorithm:

Basic description of algorithm in step by step form:
1.) Create Two Projects one for server MyServer and another for client ServerClient.
2.) Put the following code snippet in res folder of MyServer project res/layout/main.xml :

 

 

 

3.) Put the following code snippet in res folder of ServerClient project res/layout/main.xml :

 

 

 

4.) Add the following permissions in AndroidManifest.xml of both project :

5.) Redirect the port :

 

 

 

6.) Run the both applications.

Steps to Create Server:

1.) Open Eclipse. Use the New Project Wizard and select Android Project Give the respective project name i.e. MyServer. Enter following information:
Project name: MyServer
Build Target: Android APIs 2.1
Application name: MyServer
Package name: com.app. MyServer
Create Activity: MyServer

On Clicking Finish MyServer code structure is generated with the necessary Android Packages being imported along with MyServer.java. MyServer class will look like following:

 

 

 

Steps to Create Client:

2.) Open Eclipse. Use the New Project Wizard and select Android Project Give the respective project name i.e. ServerClient. Enter following information:
Project name: ServerClient
Build Target: Android APIs 2.1
Application name: ServerClient
Package name: com.app.ServerClient
Create Activity: ServerClient

On Clicking Finish ServerClient code structure is generated with the necessary Android Packages being imported along with ServerClient.java. ServerClient class will look like following:

 

 

 

Output –The final output:
Client :

Server :

Just wondering why you chose such a convoluted PrintWriter when

out = new PrintWriter(sock.getOutputStream(), true);

seems to do the trick…

hi sushant,

I done what you said above, but i am getting the error “error3”.

When i have to do the following steps?

i) run -> cmd -> telnet localhost 5554
ii) redir add tcp:5000:6000

what is the need of the above step? and i do it to connect to serverclient or myserver emulator?

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

i’m writing a client / server app that uses sockets and I’m currently using AsyncTask for threads to update my UI thread.

My clientphone will send two separate control signals (motor and steering) to the serverphone which displays this information on the UI thread.

When do I use AsyncTask and when do I use a Thread class and Handlers to get the updates to the UI?

Benefits drawbacks?

Hii,

Thanks for this effort. I am pretty new to socket program, I can able to run the app and the server can get the string from client. But this will happen for first time, when i post to server for second time, the edited text is not appear. I really dont know where i made mistake. Moreover i dint wrote separate class for server or client. I mingled together. Can you please guide me on where i made mistake or what should i do to post the message concurrently. Thanks in advance

Hi! Could you send to my e-mail this project?
ServerClient application hangs.
ServerClient/srs/com/app/ServerClient/ServerClient.java
faulty code:
try {
          InetAddress serverAddr = InetAddress.getByName (serverIpAddress);
          socket = new Socket (serverAddr, REDIRECTED_SERVERPORT);
       } Catch (UnknownHostException e1) {
          e1.printStackTrace ();
       } Catch (IOException e1) {
          e1.printStackTrace ();
       }
Thank!
