Abstract [en]

The focus of this bachelor thesis is  on providing the existing MediaSense framework with a component that will ensure that the connection between devices will not  be interrupted if a change of  IP address occurs. The goal is that a user who is  connected to a device should not  notice any interruption in the application flow if s/he should change her/his destination and therefore her/his IP address. The solution involves a TCP connector, more specifically a socket that will handle the redirection of the connection. Java was utilised as the programming language, which made the integration into the existing system simpler, as the original system had been  previously created using Java. During the development an iterative method of programming was used, testing each function before moving on to the next. Testing was conducted  using computers and simulating IP-switches in order to verify that the application flow was not  interrupted, as well as measuring the connecting times of the socket. The results showed that the socket has the ability to handle a change of IP address but at the  cost of some additional connection time which is added to both  the initial connection and to the reconnection. The buffer was able to handle all the data sent by the application while the system changed IP address. The conclusion of this thesis is that the concrete and verifiable goals for the application were met, although the external test platform did not work as expected
