This week's book giveaway is in the Testing forum. We're giving away four copies of The Way of the Web Tester: A Beginner's Guide to Automating Tests and have Jonathan Rasmusson on-line! See this thread for details.
I have this problem regarding socket programming. I have a server listening on 4 ports and a client connected to them. I have separate threads for each channel/port on both client and server. But I am facing a problem with blocking read call.What if I need to write to the socket while it is blocked on a read? Should I create another thread for the writing (which means I have to worry about deadlock/race conditions, right?) or can I somehow interrupt the thread, abort the blocked read command and write instead?
