Hello João, One more thing, I recommend you to create the TWSocketServer into a separated thread just to avoid your appplication interface to be overloaded/non responsive in case of hudge activity.
You can also dettach some client sockets and attach them into some separated thread if they may take longer time to execute (for exemple long database request or disk file activity). As ICS uses an event driven model this permit to manage very easy tons of connections but you must be responsive and make each triggered event finish as fast as possible or the next event (for exemple an other OnDataAvailable for other client) will have to wait. You may also create some worker thread that you can send thoses longer operation the release the event faster. Regards. JG> Hello, JG> Jus tone more thing: can youn point me to that example?
