sockets, streams, and confusion

Hey Java Gurus,

I wrote a simple chat program. Now I am trying to modify the server so that will chat on one port and transfer a file on another. When I run this class, the writeFile() method does not diplay any of its System.out.println() messages which makes me believe it is not being called. Thanks for any help you can give. I really do appreciate it.

In the constructor you call both listen() and writeFile(). First listen() is invoked from the constructor, but it never leaves because you have a while(true) loop in there.
So it never breaks out of the constructor.
Hope that helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
