passing data/recordset through socket
Hi you all
I'm trying to set up an socket server with multiple clients.
This is working very nice.
I could send a text message from the server to a client or from a client to a server.
Now the problem that i'm having,
It isn't enough to just send a few text lines to a client or vice versa
I want to send a complete dataset or recordset, depending on wich is the best implementation.
Now it has to work in both ways, the server should send a dataset to the client, who can update this, and could send it back.
Now the only information i can find by sending datastreams through a socket, is information about strings.
They all encode a string to an asci send the asci and translate them back.
Anyone who has a solution for my problem ?
Or maybe it isn't just possible to send something else as a string through a getstream method.
Or anyone has a solution how to transfer xml files to a client ?
Don't know much about sockets I'm affraid, but you could do it through remoting. If you want help with that let me know.
