    Default chat application login error

    I want to make a chat application in java but when I'm trying to log in to the server it gives me an error or it has unending loop. I cant find the error.

    when I try to log in to the server using the client. the while loop in checkClientMessage() method doesnt stop
    it gives me unending loop like "User "+loginUser[0] +" has logged in" as a message.
    also, it should print "200" when the user can log in, but in the client side, it cannot read "200" and it doesnt read anything. it prints out null string.
    please help me. here are my codes.

    If you state: while(!line.equals("exit")), then obviously it's going to infinitely loop until your string equals "exit".

    First and VERY IMPORTANT you MUST add calls to printStaceTrace() to EVERY catch block so that you see what and where the problems with your code are.
