What are the advantages and disadvantages of Java Sockets?

Advantages:

  • Flexible and powerful.
  • Cause low network traffic if efficiently used.
  • Only updated information can be sent.

Disadvantages:

  • The Java applets can establish communication only with the machine requested and not with any other machine on the network.
  • Sockets allow only raw data to be sent. This means that both client and server need to have mechanisms to interpret the data.
