Hi.
Guess no one was interested in my recent posting about input / output streams.
In the meantime, some basic research (books, www, buy-beg-borrow...) turns up 3 categories :
(1) text tx thru sockets using
readLine (BufferedReader);
print (PrintWriter) ... I know this one, helps me to debug;
(2) tx of binary data
DataOutputStream ;
DataInputstream
(3) serialized objects
ObjectInputStream;
ObjectOutputStream
...
It seems to me I can use option (3) serialized objects to do data, binary stuff, just about anything so far...
Come to think of it : in an s2a-communication using http-tunneling, is it always necessary to use serialized objects for our input/output streams ???
Sometimes, when I get lucky, some guru answers...

Please do pontificate and philosophize, I will appreciate that.
