In one of my main threads in Java, I'm using a "while(listening)" loop that calls "accept()" on my ServerSocket object. Next, a new client thread is automatically made and it's added to a collection.
Now, there's also an "Admin" thread that I want to use for commands, like exit, which would cause the client threads to shut down, shut itself down and shut down the main thread. But my problem is that "accept()" call in the "while(listening)" loop is blocking all the commands. I can't figure out a way to interrupt it. Is there a way to stop the blocking method?
