Hi there,

the Socket Channel doesn't wait for incoming messages. The select() Method always return.

--> I got 100% CPU utilization because the while is always running.

Any suggestions ?

Here is the code snippet:

InetSocketAddress socket = new InetSocketAddress("C9769CE0",8100);
           socketChannel =;
           Selector selector = SelectorProvider.provider().openSelector();            
           SelectionKey key = socketChannel.register(selector,SelectionKey.OP_READ);
           CharBuffer charBuffer = CharBuffer.allocate(1024);
           int keysAdded;
           while (true)

--> the select method dont wait here for incoming messages ?

You might have an error condition waiting on the socket (like "Could not connect"). Have you checked that?

That would be the problem, wouldn't it?

I would be surprised... *does* block, indefinitely, according to the NIO specification.

From the API docs, a READ selector ought to block until one of it's channels has received incoming data which your code has not yet read out, OR until any of its channels has been disconnected (not in the docs Sad).

There are other alternatives, but these are all official bugs with e.g. 1.4.0 and 1.4.1 on specific platforms, and have IIRC all been fixed.

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...
