Let's start at the beginning: how can you tell it isn't working?

When I try to run one of these files, an error appears:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem:
The method main cannot be declared static; static methods can only be declared in a static or top level type

at server.SimpleChatServer$ClientHandler.main(SimpleChatServer.java:40)

You wrote 200ish lines of code before you tried compiling?

that's your problem right there. Never write more than 2-3 lines before you compile. If you do, you are dooming yourself to failure.

That message says that your "public static void main" method shouldn't be inside that nested class. Move it out of there so that it's a method of SimpleChatServer.
