How do you know that? Does your app freeze? (that would
indicate the socket isn't writable). Nothing happens? (most
likely the server is waiting for more - how does the server know
when you're done sending?) Do you get an exception?
You're not checking how bytes were actually sent. I have no
idea what createfilehandler does with the socket, although I'd
guess that's not the problem.

My first guess is that you haven't delimited the sent data
properly, and the server is waiting for more.
