I considered this but I really need an array of bytes, I'm not sure
how this would work with the byte type

I have authentication by using command line parameters, I know it
works as I have a parent class AbstractServlet which validates
requests before calling the requested servlet. The requested servlet
runs, so the validation is correct. I'm running eclipse and in debug
mode I can check the PB variable, this shows the fields are set
correctly. I assume the sending from the app succeeds as the servlet
runs on request.

I don't know how to check the number of bytes sent or received, would
you mind explaining?

Thanks for the suggestions.
