UDP - User Datagram Protocol
User Datagram Protocol or UDP for short is very simple connectionless
protocol that can be used to transfer datagram packets in both the direction.
Client can send the datagram packets to server and it can also receive the reply
from server. UDP does not provide the reliability nor ordering guarantees that TCP does.
- What is UDP?
The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a transport protocol that supports
Network Application. It layered on just below the ?Session? and sits
above the IP(Internet Protocol) in open system interconnection model (OSI).
- UDP Client in Java
In this section, you will know how to send any request or
messages for UDP server by the UDP client. For this process you must require the
destination IP address and destination port number. If you know both, then you
send messages to UDP server.
You can also develop the UPD server in Java that can process the data
received on a particular port. This type of application is very useful in
getting the data using UDP protocol. With the help of these tutorials you should
be able to develop your own application in Java.
- UDP Server in Java
Providing you information relating to all
technicalities of UDP server. This section provides you the brief description
and program of the UDP server only for received your messages or information.
- Sending and receiving
information to the UDP Client in Java
Here, you will provide send and receive information by the UDP client
in Java. UDP client sends information or messages to UDP server and it
collects some messages from UDP server.
- Receiving and sending a
request to UDP server in Java
Here, you will know how to receive and send messages by UDP server.
First of all, UDP server receives messages and sends some information to UDP
