okay u got me its not interesting at all but i thought if i said that more people would have a look!!!! sorry
im trying to create a server that after the 10th connection of a client reads files and sends to the client, the client then sends back an answer to the question and if correct messages of the prize will be sent to the client.
I had it working to the point of the server sent over the file but the client could not send back. so to fix i made alterations. i tried to implement the server as also a client and the client as also a server so both can send and recieve(is this necessary) and other slight alterations and now the program doesnt display a thing, just 2 blank screens. Tomorrow we have to demonstrate this project and marks will be given on what is displayed, which in my case will be nothing even though i have worked really hard. java tutorials on the web implement guis which just confuse me i cant figure it out. Basically im clutching at straws here. can someone help me please?!
here is the code:
Client

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

public class ReadFileClientApp {

  	public static void main(String args[]) 
  	{
    	try {
      	InetAddress inet = InetAddress.getLocalHost() ;//gets the address of the host/server
      	try {
				Socket s = new Socket(inet, 2001);//creates socket on port 2011
				InputStream in = s.getInputStream();
				BufferedReader d = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
				OutputStream o = s.getOutputStream() ;
				PrintWriter p = new PrintWriter(o) ;///allows to read and write to server

				String line ;
				
					while ((line = d.readLine()) != null) 
					{
						System.out.println(line);//prints input from server
						while ((line = d.readLine()) != null) 
					{
      		  		System.out.println(line);//prints input from server
        			}
      		  		
        			
        			
        	ServerSocket server = new ServerSocket(2002) ;//attempt to make client also a server
        	while (true) {
	    Socket client = server.accept() ;
      		  	
        		String answers;
        		BufferedReader inp= new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
        		answers=inp.readLine();
        		System.out.println(answers);
        		p.println(answers);
        		p.flush() ;
        		line=d.readLine();
        		System.out.println(line);//sending answer to the questions in one long string to server
        		}
        		
        }	
      	}
      	catch (IOException e) 
      		{
				System.out.println("Failed connection to server") ;
      		}
    	}
    	catch (UnknownHostException e) {
      	System.out.println("Unknown Host ") ;
      	e.printStackTrace();
    	}
