From just a quick read it looks like it ought to run fine. Does it do what you want it to?

I tried to run your code sample but there are several unresolved types :
GUI
ResourceAllocator
CPU
Memory
DiskS
Resources

Without those other classes its difficult to run your example...

Both server and client programs have few issues:
  • server and client port numbers are different. They should be same
  • server's IP address is that of local host. I am not sure what is address of client host? To run on same host both server and host IP address should be that of local host
  • what is the format of your .dat file?
  • if numbers are specified in ASCII format in myFile.dat, I believe you cannot correctly read with DataInputStream. Refer to DataInput class to see input format

    See modified client and server code. I removed stuff not required for my test.

    import java.net.*;
    import java.io.*;

    public class strtest_client
    {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    String IP = args[0];
    String port = args[1];

    // String IP = "192.168.1.3";
    Socket echoSocket = null;
    PrintWriter out = null;
    BufferedReader in = null;

    try {
    echoSocket = new Socket(IP, 4444);
    out = new PrintWriter(echoSocket.getOutputStream(), true);
    in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(echoSocket
    .getInputStream()));
    } catch (Exception ex) {
    System.out.println("error");
    ex.printStackTrace();
    System.exit(1);
    }
    try {
    /* DataInputStream inStream = new DataInputStream(new FileInputStream(
    "myFile.dat")); */
    // convert to java input format
    BufferedReader infile = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(new File("myFile.dat")));
    DataOutputStream outfile = new DataOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(new File("myFile.java.dat")));

    while (true) {
    String line = infile.readLine();
    if (line == null) break; outfile.writeInt(Integer.parseInt(line.trim()));
    }
    infile.close();
    outfile.close();

    DataInputStream inStream = new DataInputStream(new FileInputStream(
    "myFile.java.dat"));
    try {
    while (true) {
    int num = inStream.readInt();

    System.out.println(num);
    out.print(num);
    }
    } catch (IOException e) {
    System.out.println("finish reading the file");
    } finally {
    inStream.close();
    out.close();
    in.close();
    echoSocket.close();

    // add these
    inStream = null;
    out = null;
    in = null;
    }

    //problem.make sure that in stream is open
    if (in != null) {
    System.out.println("echo: " + in.readLine());
    }

    } catch (IOException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    }
    }
    }

    === Server code ====
    import java.io.*;
    import java.net.*;

    public class strtest_server {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {

    int port = Integer.parseInt(args[0]);

    ServerSocket serverSocket = null;

    try {
    serverSocket = new ServerSocket(port);
    } catch (IOException e) {
    System.err.println("Could not listen on port: "+port);
    System.exit(1);
    }

    Socket clientSocket = null;
    try {
    clientSocket = serverSocket.accept();
    } catch (IOException e) {
    System.err.println("Accept failed.");
    System.exit(1);
    }

    int [] arr = new int[3];

    PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(clientSocket.getOutputStream(), true);
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
    new InputStreamReader(
    clientSocket.getInputStream()));

    String inputLine, outputLine;

    out.println(" ");

    int i =0;

    while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null) {
    Integer num = Integer.parseInt(inputLine);
    arr[i]=num;
    i++;
    }

    out.close();
    in.close();

    clientSocket.close();
    serverSocket.close();
    }
    }

    To run on same machine, I start server as:
    java strtest_server 4444
    client as
    java strtest_client 10.0.40.103 4444

    Hope this help
