Problem in reading from Input Stream

Hey experts,

I have a client program in java that is communicating with a server program that is also in java using sockets, the client is writing using: os.write  where os is of type OutputStream, and the server is reading the sent string using:  datain.readLine()   where datain is of type BufferedReader. The connection is being successfull, and the client is successfully sending the string, but the server is never receiving it, it is remaining stuck on the datain.readLine() statement.....any help on solving the problem??

The readLine method will read characters until it encounters a '\n' or '\r' character.
Using a BufferedWriter and the println() method would make things easier.
