    Proxy/gateway alike thing in Java

    Some formatting gets lost while pasting this here, original: http://www.elhalf.com/Project.java
    Could be used maybe as a base for a msn alike thing. You'd have to use multithreading then though.
    Code:
    /*Waits for a client to connect on port 23, then if the client
    enters the string 'findhost' a new socket starts listening on
    port 24, when second host is connected incoming traffic is being
    forwarded to the other host (hence it acts as a gateway between
    those 2 hosts).
    */

    import java.io.*;
    
    public class Project extends Thread {

    System.out.println("Project is running on port " + PORTNUM);

    Just a couple of notes:
    1. Don't use e.toString() to print exception errors, instead, use e.getMessage() or e.getLocalizedMessage for the actual error, and e.getStackTrace() or e.printStackTrace() for the trace.
    2. The whole design of this app could be rethought due to statically declared variables and so forth. You might want to consider passing the Project.writer and Project.reader objects to WaitForSecond, if only because it is restricting the capabilities to a single instance.
    3. The next step could be to implement a standard known proxy protocol so that this could be used with a browser or FTP client.

    Nice start though.

    Thanks for your comments, I know, while writing this thing I suddenly realised that in the way I was doing it I'd have to declare those vars statically.
    3. The next step could be to implement a standard known proxy protocol so that this could be used with a browser or FTP client.
    My intention was (and still is) to eventually develop a IM program that works like msn, this is esentially the same thing (sort off). Although that would require serious adaptations cause it'll require multithreading.
