[Android] Android developer Server/Client example - server side using ServerSocket

Public on March 10, 2015
It's the server side implementation of our Server/Client example, the client side is listed in next post "client side using Socket".


In this server side implementation, it will list its own IP address when program start. And run in background thread, start a ServerSocket and wait at serverSocket.accept(). Once any request received, it return a message to client side.
