Can you explain what you are doing a bit more....

I assume you communication protocol is failing..?

If you are writing a clinet/server app both the client and the server must know what data to expect.. (protocol)

For example.. if you send 2 strings to the client (from the server) the client must know how many string to retrieve..

dos.writeInt(how_many)
dos.writeUTF(string1);
dos.writeUTF(string2);
dos.writeUTF(string_n);

client reads how many and expects that many..

dis.readInt(how_many)
for(int i=0;i<how_many;i++)
{

string1 = dis.readUTF();
string1 = dis.readUTF();
string_n = dis.readUTF();

}

I'm not sure what your problem is though.. can u explain it som more..

You have to define your custom message system. In the most simple case it should be something like this:

//Control line
Line1 : "DO X, DATA N"
Next N lines contain data

When the server (or the client) receives a control line, it knows what to read afterwards. Also, it is good the communication to be, from the type,
request, response, request, response,....

so, it won't hapen bot the server and the client to wait for a request (or responce) simultaneously, which case they'll both block.

Another solution. Make two channels, outgoing and incomming, preferably in separate threads. this way you will be able to send , while waiting and receive while sending. this is especially valid for the server.

Cheers.
