28.15 java.net.ServerSocket (JDK 1.0)

This class is used by servers to listen for connection requests from clients. When you create a ServerSocket, you specify the port to listen on. The accept() method begins listening on that port, and blocks until a client requests a connection on that port. At that point, accept() accepts the connection, creating and returning a Socket that the server can use to communicate with the client.

public class ServerSocket extends Object {
    // Public Constructors
            public ServerSocket(int port) throws IOException;
            public ServerSocket(int port, int backlog) throws IOException;
        1.1public ServerSocket(int port, int backlog, InetAddress bindAddr) throws IOException;
    // Class Methods
            public static synchronized void setSocketFactory(SocketImplFactory fac) throws IOException;
    // Public Instance Methods
            public Socket accept() throws IOException;
            public void close() throws IOException;
            public InetAddress getInetAddress();
            public int getLocalPort();
