Spring Boot WebSocket URL Not Responding and RxJS Call Repetition?

Solution for Spring Boot WebSocket URL Not Responding and RxJS Call Repetition?
is Given Below:

I’m trying to follow a guide to WebSockets at https://www.devglan.com/spring-boot/spring-boot-angular-websocket

I’d like it to respond to ws://localhost:8448/wsb/softlayer-cost-file, but I’m sure I misunderstood something. I’d like to get it to receive a binary file and issue periodic updates as the file is being processed.

Questions are:

  • How come Spring does not respond to my requests despite all the multiple URLs I try (see below).
  • Does my RxJS call run once and then conclude, or does it keep running until some closure has happened? Sorry to ask what might be obvious to others.

On my Spring Boot Server start, I see no errors. After about 5-7 minutes of running, I saw the following log message:

INFO  o.s.w.s.c.WebSocketMessageBrokerStats - WebSocketSession[0 current WS(0)-HttpStream(0)-HttpPoll(0), 0 total, 0 closed abnormally (0 connect failure, 0 send limit, 0 transport error)], stompSubProtocol[processed CONNECT(0)-CONNECTED(0)-DISCONNECT(0)], stompBrokerRelay[null], inboundChannel[pool size = 0, active threads = 0, queued tasks = 0, completed tasks = 0], outboundChannel[pool size = 0, active threads = 0, queued tasks = 0, completed tasks = 0], sockJsScheduler[pool size = 6, active threads = 1, queued tasks = 0, completed tasks = 5]

I’ve pointed my browser at these URLs and can’t get the Spring Boot server to show any reaction:
(I got the initial request formed in Firefox, then clicked edit/resend to try again).

Below is a snippet of Angular code where I make the call to the websocket. The service is intended to receive a file, then provide regular updates of percentage complete until the service is completed. Does this call need to be in a loop, or does the socket run until it’s closed?

Angular Snippet of call to WebSocket:

        .subscribe(data => {
            this.showLoaderBlueReport = false;
            this.successBlueReport = true;
            this.blueReportFileName = "No file selected";
            this.responseBlueReport="File ".concat(data.fileName).concat(' ').concat('is ').concat(data.exitStatus);
            this.blueReportSelected = false;
            if(error.status === 504){
              this.showLoaderBlueReport = false;
              this.stillProcessing = true;
              this.showLoaderBlueReport = false;
              this.displayUploadBlueReportsError(error, 'File upload failed');
