Problems getting response from server

Hi I was wondering if someone could figure out why my code isn't working. I cant seem to figure out how to structure my code in such a way that I can send a receive multiple messages. How should I structure this so it doesn't get stuck after the first input?I know the problem lies in my if statements. Just not sure where. Ive tried restructuring it but no luck, if(userinput.contains("")) is how I tried to continue but it obviously doesn't work. Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be great!

Here's my client code:

The client programs wait for the server to respond in the below line of code.


But as you see the TCPServer do write using outToClient. The problem I guess is that the BufferedReader's readLine() method needs the line separator to read the line.

Read http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/io/BufferedReader.html#readLine()

So add the line separator while writing from the server like outToServer.writeBytes(userinput + '\n');
