 If you would like to use TCP/IP then open a socket connection to the server, send the data to the server and then read the response back.

  Hope it helps.

if you have to send a request to http server - you can use URLConnection:

 
java.net.URL url = new java.net.URL("http://www.yahoo.com"); // the requested URL
java.net.URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();
//conn.setDoInput(true);
java.io.InputStream in = conn.getInputStream();
// then use in.read() methods to get the content of the response
