This interface was deprecated in API level 22.
Please use openConnection() instead. Please visit this webpage for further details.

Class Overview

Interface for opening connections. This interface encapsulates the logic to create sockets and to open or update the connection with the new socket. Implementations will most likely make use of socket factories.
The methods in this interface allow the creation of plain and layered sockets. Creating a tunnelled connection through a proxy, however, is not within the scope of the operator.

Parameters
conn the open connection to update
