Client Server information exchange

Im doing a small client server project and i dont fully understand how a client can talk to a server. I have set up a socket and can print from the server side to the client but what i want to be able to do now is send values from the client and save them in variables on the server side for processing.
Can you please tell me what are the comands on the client side to send a variable
String value;  and the commands on the server side to store it in String clientValue.  
Any help will be greatly appreciated

You need to get an output stream at the client end and send a String to the server. See my answer to the following question (essentially the same):
