Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
at EchoClient.main(EchoClient.java:33)
from line 22.

Based on what you have posted, EchoClient.java:33 is
messageSend = new String(args[1]);
which cannot generate the exception you describe, so please post the code that corresponds to the error message.
