    Default Sending zip from server socket

    I have been programing a multiplayer game and have been running in to a problem

    This code closes the socket
    out = p.getSocket().getOutputStream();
    ZipOutputStream mZip = new ZipOutputStream(out);
     
    //Write code to mZip
     
    mZip.flush();
    mZip.close();
    out.close();

    but how do i do so i can send more zip files?

    also the client have a almost the same problem, then i read the data i can only read it once of every time i close the clients mZip to read the next zip file that comes in i closes the socket :/

    what should i do?

    Server send code
    public static void sendData(Player[] players) 
    	{
    		for(Player p : players)
    		{
    			OutputStream out = null;
     
    			try
    			{
    				out = p.getSocket().getOutputStream();
    				ZipOutputStream mZip = new ZipOutputStream(out);
    				mZip.setLevel(1);
     
    				//send players
    				mZip.putNextEntry(aZip[0]);
    				for(Player pp : players)
    				{
    					mZip.write(pp.getData());
    				}
     
    				mZip.flush();
    				mZip.close();
    				out.close();
     
    			} catch (IOException e) {
    				e.printStackTrace();
    			}
    		}
    	}

    Cilent Receive code
    Socket s = me.getSocket();
    		while(!s.isClosed())
    		{
    			try
    			{
    				ZipInputStream mZip = new ZipInputStream(s.getInputStream());
    				if(mZip != null && mZip.available() > 0)
    				{
    					if(mZip.getNextEntry() != null)
    					{
    						String line;
    						ArrayList<Player> temp = new ArrayList<Player>();
    						BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(mZip));
    						while((line = reader.readLine()) != null)
    						{
    							Player p = new Player(null);
    							p.setName(line);
    							temp.add(p);
    						}
     
    						if(temp.size() != 0)
    						{
    							players = new Player[temp.size()];
    							temp.toArray(players);
     
    							Menu m = Main.menu;
    							m.getFrame().getContentPane().removeAll();
    							m.add(m.getPlayerPanel());
    							m.validate();
    							m.repaint();
    						}
    					}
     
    					mZip.close();
    				}
     
    			}catch(Exception e){
    				e.printStackTrace();
    			}
    		}
