Is there an API in Java parallel to the C getservbyname, that accepts a service name and returns the port number?
Do not tell me about InetAddress class because what I need is to get the port number of a service (from /etc/services).

Which would be an operating specific thing to do - Java avoids such things.

I wrote a method to search the /etc/services file
(or /etc/services or c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\services).


It is at
<A HREF="http://www.dan.drydog.com/java/GetServiceByName.java</a rel="nofollow">" TARGET=_blank>http://www.dan.drydog.com/java/GetServiceByName.java


With all due respect, this is not a system-dependent
function. The implementation may be (such as the location of
the /etc/services file or whether it's a flat file or database),
but the function can be implemented on any system.
