     Hi, I posted this question a few weeks ago already. Here is a piece 
od code describing the problem I have encoutered.
I need to receive data real time and I noticed that Jigsaw, version 
2.2.0  on Solaris would do a great deal of buffering.
If you have time to, try this little piece of code I wrote to show 
evidence of what I am saying:
You install a servlet: LogTest on Solaris and you just put my little 
Java application on Windows 2000.
This shows, that on the servlet side. The HTTP Server waits until a 
buffer is fillled to send any data. I'm using the jdk1.2.2 distribution.
I even tried to use jdk13 HTTPServletResponse class so as to be able to 
tell the buffer size I want but it has no effect on the buffering. When 
I set the buffer size to 1 , it is actually set to 4096.
What's more, if I send an HTTP/1.1 to the servlet, then it never 
receives and understands the request and the only byte I can read is -1.
I launched Jigsaw with the option -trace, 
when I used HTTP/1.0 to open a connection to the servlet, I got on the 
servlet side :
GET /servlet/jamap.servlet.LogTest? HTTP/1.0
Date ...
Host ...

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date ..
Content-type: text/html
Server: Jigsaw/2.2.0

and then I have to wait for 40 sec before I get something on my Java 
application which shoulld mean there is some buffering on Jigsaw ..

when I use HTTP/1/1 to open a connection to the servlet, I got this 
exception on the servlet side:

+++ client-0(http-server-socket-clients:42) got exception:
org.w3c.www.http.HttpParserException: missing Host header

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
Connection: close
Date: Thu, 26 Jul 2001 14:41:26 GMT
Content-Length: 0
Server: Jigsaw/2.2.0

Here are the two pieces of my code :
the servlet :
package jamap.servlet;

import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import java.util.*;
import jamap.server.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class LogTest extends HttpServlet {

  ObjectOutputStream outstream;
  ByteArrayOutputStream buffer;
  public void init (ServletConfig cfg) throws ServletException {
   super.init (cfg);
  public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
                   HttpServletResponse response) throws 
ServletException, IOException
     System.out.println("GET on the LogTest Servlet");
     //    response.setBufferSize(1);
     ServletOutputStream out=response.getOutputStream();
     this.buffer=new ByteArrayOutputStream();
     outstream =new ObjectOutputStream(out);
            outstream.writeObject(new String("essai"));
        System.out.println("wrote something");
        }catch(InterruptedException e){

Here is a small Java application , running on Windows 2000 :

package jamap.test;

import java.text.*;
import javax.swing.*;

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import javax.activation.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.mail.*;

public class eventtest{
   public static void main(String argv[]) {
       Socket s=null;
           URL url=new URL(u);
           s=new Socket(url.getHost(),url.getPort());
           PrintStream out = new PrintStream(s.getOutputStream());
           out.println("GET /servlet/jamap.servlet.LogTest?"+" HTTP/1.0 
       catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();}
       }catch(Exception e2){e2.printStackTrace();}

I would like to do a release of a reseach prototype using JIGSAW but 
giving real time management. Could you help me out ?
