Hello what i am doing is sending a file from and android phone to a java server. The fact that there is an android phone is irrelevant. The problem is when the file is sent over sockets and is outputted the file is of size zero so i can not get the information out of it. The code is below any help would be much appreciated.

Can you reproduce the problem without the sockets? That will help narrow down the causes. It will also allow someone to run the example to see what is going on.
