Listing 5. Response adapter.

public class ResponseAdapter extends HttpServlet implements
SingleThreadModel {
  final static String SVR_ADDRESS = "localhost";
  final static int    RES_PORT = 2051;

  public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
  throws ServletException, IOException {
    OutputStream toClient = res.getOutputStream();
    InputStream fromServer = new Socket(SVR_ADDRESS, RES_PORT).getInputStream();
    byte[] buffer = new byte[256];
    try {
      while(true) {
        toClient.write(buffer, 0,;
    }catch(IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
