I have created a server thread and a client thread which communicate with each other through a loopback connection. The client is writing to the server.
The server uses an existing address: 192.168.179.11:1234 and the client uses: 127.0.0.1:random open port
When I print out the connection status (toString() ) I can see that it really is connected. When I try to read from the stream, I get a -1 as a read result.
The problem is that the channel is immediately selected again by the Selector of the server, ( I never remove the OP_READ flag ) and this is basically causing an endless loop.
I thought the client side of the channel was to blame, as if it is constantly writing again and again, but it doesn't seem to be. I only see 1 printout from the method that calls write().
I wanted to capture the data with Ethereal, but that doesn't work on Windows with the loopback device. :-/
So, until I can help myself with getting the facts straight
I would like to know whether this seems to be some kind of newbie nio error.
