Uses of Class
java.net.SocketAddress

Packages that use SocketAddress
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. 
 

Uses of SocketAddress in java.net
 

Subclasses of SocketAddress in java.net
 class InetSocketAddress
          This class implements an IP Socket Address (IP address + port number) It can also be a pair (hostname + port number), in which case an attempt will be made to resolve the hostname.
 

Methods in java.net that return SocketAddress
 SocketAddress Proxy.address()
          Returns the socket address of the proxy, or null if its a direct connection.
 SocketAddress Socket.getLocalSocketAddress()
          Returns the address of the endpoint this socket is bound to, or null if it is not bound yet.
 SocketAddress ServerSocket.getLocalSocketAddress()
          Returns the address of the endpoint this socket is bound to, or null if it is not bound yet.
 SocketAddress DatagramSocket.getLocalSocketAddress()
          Returns the address of the endpoint this socket is bound to, or null if it is not bound yet.
 SocketAddress Socket.getRemoteSocketAddress()
          Returns the address of the endpoint this socket is connected to, or null if it is unconnected.
 SocketAddress DatagramSocket.getRemoteSocketAddress()
          Returns the address of the endpoint this socket is connected to, or null if it is unconnected.
 SocketAddress DatagramPacket.getSocketAddress()
          Gets the SocketAddress (usually IP address + port number) of the remote host that this packet is being sent to or is coming from.
 

Methods in java.net with parameters of type SocketAddress
 void Socket.bind(SocketAddress bindpoint)
          Binds the socket to a local address.
 void ServerSocket.bind(SocketAddress endpoint)
          Binds the ServerSocket to a specific address (IP address and port number).
 void DatagramSocket.bind(SocketAddress addr)
          Binds this DatagramSocket to a specific address & port.
 void ServerSocket.bind(SocketAddress endpoint, int backlog)
          Binds the ServerSocket to a specific address (IP address and port number).
 void Socket.connect(SocketAddress endpoint)
          Connects this socket to the server.
 void DatagramSocket.connect(SocketAddress addr)
          Connects this socket to a remote socket address (IP address + port number).
protected abstract  void SocketImpl.connect(SocketAddress address, int timeout)
          Connects this socket to the specified port number on the specified host.
 void Socket.connect(SocketAddress endpoint, int timeout)
          Connects this socket to the server with a specified timeout value.
abstract  void ProxySelector.connectFailed(URI uri, SocketAddress sa, IOException ioe)
          Called to indicate that a connection could not be established to a proxy/socks server.
 void MulticastSocket.joinGroup(SocketAddress mcastaddr, NetworkInterface netIf)
          Joins the specified multicast group at the specified interface.
protected abstract  void DatagramSocketImpl.joinGroup(SocketAddress mcastaddr, NetworkInterface netIf)
          Join the multicast group.
 void MulticastSocket.leaveGroup(SocketAddress mcastaddr, NetworkInterface netIf)
          Leave a multicast group on a specified local interface.
protected abstract  void DatagramSocketImpl.leaveGroup(SocketAddress mcastaddr, NetworkInterface netIf)
          Leave the multicast group.
 void DatagramPacket.setSocketAddress(SocketAddress address)
          Sets the SocketAddress (usually IP address + port number) of the remote host to which this datagram is being sent.
 

Constructors in java.net with parameters of type SocketAddress
DatagramPacket(byte[] buf, int offset, int length, SocketAddress address)
          Constructs a datagram packet for sending packets of length length with offset ioffsetto the specified port number on the specified host.
DatagramPacket(byte[] buf, int length, SocketAddress address)
          Constructs a datagram packet for sending packets of length length to the specified port number on the specified host.
DatagramSocket(SocketAddress bindaddr)
          Creates a datagram socket, bound to the specified local socket address.
MulticastSocket(SocketAddress bindaddr)
          Create a MulticastSocket bound to the specified socket address.
Proxy(Proxy.Type type, SocketAddress sa)
          Creates an entry representing a PROXY connection.
 

Uses of SocketAddress in java.nio.channels
 

Methods in java.nio.channels that return SocketAddress
abstract  SocketAddress DatagramChannel.receive(ByteBuffer dst)
          Receives a datagram via this channel.
 

Methods in java.nio.channels with parameters of type SocketAddress
abstract  boolean SocketChannel.connect(SocketAddress remote)
          Connects this channel's socket.
abstract  DatagramChannel DatagramChannel.connect(SocketAddress remote)
          Connects this channel's socket.
static SocketChannel SocketChannel.open(SocketAddress remote)
          Opens a socket channel and connects it to a remote address.
abstract  int DatagramChannel.send(ByteBuffer src, SocketAddress target)
          Sends a datagram via this channel.
