    Default Help! Client only reads first line server sends!

    Hello guys! Basically I need to know how to make the client receive multiple lines from the server. In my code it only reads the first line.

    Server:
    public class Server
    {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
    	{
     
    		Server SERVER = new Server();
    		SERVER.run();
     
    	}
     
    	public void run() throws Exception
    	{
     
    		ServerSocket SRVSOCK = new ServerSocket(4444);
    		Socket SOCK = SRVSOCK.accept();
    		InputStreamReader IR = new InputStreamReader(SOCK.getInputStream());
    		BufferedReader BR = new BufferedReader(IR);
     
    		PrintStream PS = new PrintStream(SOCK.getOutputStream());
    		PS.println("Message 1" + "\n" + "Message2");//*bounces the message back to the client!
     
     
    	}
     
    }

    Client:

    public class Client
    {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
    	{
     
    		Client CLIENT = new Client();
    		CLIENT.run();
     
    	}
     
    	public void run() throws Exception
    	{
     
    		Socket SOCK = new Socket("localhost",4444);
    		PrintStream PS = new PrintStream(SOCK.getOutputStream()); //* from client to server
     
    		InputStreamReader IR = new InputStreamReader(SOCK.getInputStream());//*from server to client
    		BufferedReader BR = new BufferedReader(IR);
     
    		String MESSAGE = BR.readLine();
    		System.out.println(MESSAGE);//*display what is received from the server
     
     
    	}
     
    }

    I am new to java so any help is appreciated! Thanks guys!

    maxitis is correct. Please check out examples of this type of coding and you'll see that most use while loops to capture all streamed text from the server.
