Client/Server through-put

I currently use datainputstream and printstream for my
server and get two requests per second.
I have seen a program which uses bytes in a dataoutputstream(??) is that faster?

I set up the streams like so:

try {
dis = new DataInputStream( theSock.getInputStream());
ps = new PrintStream( theSock.getOutputStream());
} catch (Exception e);

And scan the client inputl lke this:
 
while (theSock !=null) {
String input = null;
try {
input = dis.readLine().trim();
if(input != null)
      parent.handleInput(input, this);        

} catch (Exception e);
}

Which raises another question.
In my client executions stops and waits for a
 'dis.readLine().trim(); does the above also?

I want to know the fastest way to get data going from clients to server and to clients- for awesome games of course.

Well. They aren't very fast because Java is interpet language. But I can asure you both are pretty same. I have worked with both and landed with PrintStream and DataInputStream
I have made one observation tool for computers and it send huge amount of data from Server to Clients and it works pretty quick.
I haven't do optimization, which would be good, but  runs fast.
So there is no need to worry about speed.
