Known Direct Subclasses
This class creates server sockets. It may be subclassed by other factories, which create particular types of server sockets. This provides a general framework for the addition of public socket-level functionality. It is the server side analogue of a socket factory, and similarly provides a way to capture a variety of policies related to the sockets being constructed.
Like socket factories, server Socket factory instances have methods used to create sockets. There is also an environment specific default server socket factory; frameworks will often use their own customized factory.
