I am sending multiple HTTP req to intruder with positions marked using sendToIntruder() method in burp Extender API but when I click Launch attack I get java.net.socket in the alerts Tab and no status as 200/400 is coming in the launch attack results box. Can anybody please help in sorting out this

The SocketException error indicates that Burp wasn't able to open a socket connecting to the target server. Can you check that you have the correct host details specified in the Target tab of your attack?
