SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

Hello, I'm just learning network programming and I've made a test program that checks the latest versions of various software. I'm using the HTTPSession (reinvented the wheel on purpose) to retreive webpages, but the time it takes is excessive. I find that it would read a few hundred bytes, hang, read a some more until it's done. I ran this program under both Windows and Linux to see if was due to ip implementation differences, but in both cases, using BufferedReader to read a socket is much faster than GetPage. I also suspected that this problem could be because I'm using the latest Java Mustang releases. Any ideas what the problem is?
while ((bytes_read = m_in.read(buffer)) != -1)
// fixme: this will not work for non ascii encoded web pages
// and very bad in terms of memory fragmentation
for (int i = 0; i < bytes_read; ++i)
string += (char)buffer[i];
private Socket m_socket;
private PrintStream m_out;
private InputStream m_in;
