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.
