What is datagram in java program?

Datagram are bundles of information shared between the machines in network.

How to implement datagram in java program?

Java implements datagram on top of UDP protocol using two classes.
  • DatagramPacket
  • DatagramSocket

What is DatagramPacket?

DatagramPacket specifies the buffer that will receive data and size of the packet.

What is DatagramSocket?

DatagramSocket: speciies the target address and port to determine where the data in the packet will be sent.
