how can i read data from a text file line by line and send them from client to server and then write them to a text file line by line so that i appears as if i had sent the actual data, but in reality just read the file and sent its contents.

Thanks

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(filename));
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(socket.getOutputStream()));
String line = null;
while (null!=(line=in.readLine()))
{
   out.println(line);
}
in.close();
out.close();

Similiarily to recieve the file:

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(socket.getInputStream()));
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(filename));
String line = null;
while (null!=(line=in.readLine()))
{
   out.println(line);
}
in.close();
out.close();

you should use the full path, otherwise it will look for the file relative to where you code is run from.

And you have to catch exceptions too. Dont forget try {} catch {} blocks.
