readObject() Method.

Posted by Oha on February 14, 2002 at 12:05 PM

I am trying to use the readObject() method inside a while loop to read in a vector.

input = (Vector)is.readObject();}

The problem is that the vector is read in on the first pass through the loop correctly. But on the next passes the vector "input" does not change even though I am sending in different values.
If I did exactly the same thing but using a string in place of the vector, the string is updated correctly all the time. Is there something wrong with using the vector and readObject() method in a loop.
I need to update the vector each time when passing through the loop using the readObject() method.
If you wrote a simple client/server application with the readObject() method inside a while loop, passing a vector, you will see that the vector is not updated and no errors are thrown either.
I am using JDK1.3 on WinNT.

Thanks for your time,
