Subject RE: Socket Servlet using Tomcat 5.5.17
Date Wed, 31 May 2006 04:52:10 GMT
I know that Tomcat's purpose is to listen for requests and pass them on to 
the appropriately mapped servlet. But i want to use Tomcat's because i 
will not  need to code all the mutli-threading part of it. and if in the 
future some of the client connect over HTTP, I will have no problem 
handling them. My question is that can i  Configure Tomcat to listen for a 
generalize TCP connection  or not ?? Is there special Connector can do 
that for me ?

Tomcat's purpose is to listen for requests and pass them on to the
appropriately mapped servlet. Maybe you do not want to use Tomcat, but
instead roll your own server that simply listens on a particular port for
socket opens. But again, to do this well is not a trivial exercise.

The port you choose to have Tomcat listen on is configurable (the default 
is
port 8080). But it still expects a well formed HTTP request to arrive. 
That
said I do know that there are both HTTP and non-HTTP versions of the 
Servlet
interface - maybe someone else can tell you how this might or might not 
help
you cause Tomcat to listen for a generalize TCP connection.

Could you please clarify something for me?  You say you expect the
servlet to run when the socket is opened.  Did you send a request or are
you really expecting the servlet to execute on socket open?  The servlet
won't be aware of the client until a request is made and tomcat has a
chance to route it to your servlet per the spec.
