Uses of Class
java.net.Socket

Packages that use Socket
java.net Provides the classes for implementing networking applications. 
java.nio.channels Defines channels, which represent connections to entities that are capable of performing I/O operations, such as files and sockets; defines selectors, for multiplexed, non-blocking I/O operations. 
java.rmi.server Provides classes and interfaces for supporting the server side of RMI. 
javax.net Provides classes for networking applications. 
javax.net.ssl Provides classes for the secure socket package. 
javax.rmi.ssl Provides implementations of RMIClientSocketFactory and RMIServerSocketFactory over the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. 
 

Uses of Socket in java.net
 

Methods in java.net that return Socket
 Socket ServerSocket.accept()
          Listens for a connection to be made to this socket and accepts it.
 

Methods in java.net with parameters of type Socket
protected  void ServerSocket.implAccept(Socket s)
          Subclasses of ServerSocket use this method to override accept() to return their own subclass of socket.
 

Uses of Socket in java.nio.channels
 

Methods in java.nio.channels that return Socket
abstract  Socket SocketChannel.socket()
          Retrieves a socket associated with this channel.
 

Uses of Socket in java.rmi.server
 

Methods in java.rmi.server that return Socket
abstract  Socket RMISocketFactory.createSocket(String host, int port)
          Creates a client socket connected to the specified host and port.
 Socket RMIClientSocketFactory.createSocket(String host, int port)
          Create a client socket connected to the specified host and port.
 

Uses of Socket in javax.net
 

Methods in javax.net that return Socket
 Socket SocketFactory.createSocket()
          Creates an unconnected socket.
abstract  Socket SocketFactory.createSocket(InetAddress host, int port)
          Creates a socket and connects it to the specified port number at the specified address.
abstract  Socket SocketFactory.createSocket(InetAddress address, int port, InetAddress localAddress, int localPort)
          Creates a socket and connect it to the specified remote address on the specified remote port.
abstract  Socket SocketFactory.createSocket(String host, int port)
          Creates a socket and connects it to the specified remote host at the specified remote port.
abstract  Socket SocketFactory.createSocket(String host, int port, InetAddress localHost, int localPort)
          Creates a socket and connects it to the specified remote host on the specified remote port.
 

Uses of Socket in javax.net.ssl
 

Subclasses of Socket in javax.net.ssl
 class SSLSocket
          This class extends Sockets and provides secure socket using protocols such as the "Secure Sockets Layer" (SSL) or IETF "Transport Layer Security" (TLS) protocols.
 

Methods in javax.net.ssl that return Socket
abstract  Socket SSLSocketFactory.createSocket(Socket s, String host, int port, boolean autoClose)
          Returns a socket layered over an existing socket connected to the named host, at the given port.
 

Methods in javax.net.ssl with parameters of type Socket
 String X509KeyManager.chooseClientAlias(String[] keyType, Principal[] issuers, Socket socket)
          Choose an alias to authenticate the client side of a secure socket given the public key type and the list of certificate issuer authorities recognized by the peer (if any).
 String X509KeyManager.chooseServerAlias(String keyType, Principal[] issuers, Socket socket)
          Choose an alias to authenticate the server side of a secure socket given the public key type and the list of certificate issuer authorities recognized by the peer (if any).
abstract  Socket SSLSocketFactory.createSocket(Socket s, String host, int port, boolean autoClose)
          Returns a socket layered over an existing socket connected to the named host, at the given port.
 

Uses of Socket in javax.rmi.ssl
 

Methods in javax.rmi.ssl that return Socket
 Socket SslRMIClientSocketFactory.createSocket(String host, int port)
          Creates an SSL socket.
