    it only can run till read
    Where does the server write what the client is trying to read? Does the debug output show that the server has written something for the client to read? If the server hasn't written something for the client to read, what is the problem that it doesn't write something?


    The posted code does not have enough debug println statements in it. Only two messages are shown on the console

    YOU NEED TO ADD LOTS OF println() STATEMENTS TO SHOW THE EXECUTION FLOW AND WHAT VALUES ARE SENT AND RECEIVED!!!!
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

     public void run(){
                try{
                while(true){               
                  String msgtoreturn = "";
                     int  log = inputFromClient.readInt();         
     
                            allmessage[chatlog] = inetAddress.getHostName() + "\t" +inputFromClient.readUTF();
                        jtaDisplay.append( allmessage[chatlog] + "\n");
                        chatlog = chatlog+1;             
                       outputToClient.writeInt(chatlog);
     
                      for(int i = log;i<chatlog;i++){
                           msgtoreturn = msgtoreturn + allmessage[i] + "\n";
                      }
                        System.out.print(msgtoreturn);
                       outputToClient.writeUTF(msgtoreturn);
                     outputToClient.flush();
     
                    }
                }catch(IOException ex){
                    System.err.println(ex);
                }
            }


    server there have outputToClient.writeInt(chatlog); AND outputToClient.writeUTF(msgtoreturn);

    The server have written thing for the client to read. first client and second client read successful but after second client read and use back first client to read ,it seem like not successful to read already

    Post the debug println output that shows what happens.

    There should be a line printed for all the events in the program. Before and after all reads and writes showing what was read and what was written. Each client should be assigned an id so you can tell which client is printing the message. There needs to be a way to connect the HandleAClient class with the Client it is connected to. That can be done by printing out the socket they are using.

    Here is a sample of the debug printlns for the earlier version of the program:
    Running: java ServerClient

    200 C - connected socket=Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=8080,localport=51232]
    500 C - connected socket=Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=8080,localport=51233]
    S - waiting for connect
    S - connected
    S - writing 0
    200 C - read log=0
    S - waiting for connect
    S - connected

    500 C - read log=0
    S - waiting for connect

    i not really good at debug but i still try it, i just realize that after the second client run then back to first client to run..it stop at log = fromServer.readInt(); , but the server there is stop at allmessage[chatlog] = inetAddress.getHostName() + "\t" +inputFromClient.readUTF();
    seem like server try to read from the client at the same time client try to read from server.

    server try to read from the client at the same time client try to read from server.
    What does the debug print out show about which program wrote first and which program is trying to read?
    What order does the program need to do the writes and reads in?

    the debug show the server read first then followed by client read, then it stop already.
    program is for client to enter the data..then the server read, after read server update the data then give back to the client

    example like the server read the Int from the client so that the server can store the message inside String array at the server .
    and let say if the second client already got input in the server ,then the Int help to server to know which message need to write to the first client(the message input by second client).

    Does the debug output show that something is being written before the other side tries to read?

    nope...the last two statement is server and client try to read each other

    at server
    allmessage[chatlog] = inetAddress.getHostName() + "\t" +inputFromClient.readUTF();
    try to read from client's
    toServer.writeUTF(jtfMessage.getText().trim());

    at client
    log = fromServer.readInt();
    try to receive updated data from server's
    outputToClient.writeInt(chatlog);

    this answered your question?

    No. Just having code in the program does not mean that the code will be executed when it needs to be executed.

    What does the debug print outs show? Does it show there is a write done before there is a read?

    before server and client show they read each other int log = inputFromClient.readInt(); (in the server read successful), but when it come to allmessage[chatlog] = inetAddress.getHostName() + "\t" +inputFromClient.readUTF(); it fail to read but at the same the client there try to read from the server.

    What does the debug printout show about the sequence of the events?
    Is there a write before or at the same time as the read?

    it show that the server's log = inputFromClient.readInt() read successful then it go to another read (allmessage[chatlog] = inetAddress.getHostName() + "\t" +inputFromClient.readUTF(); ) after that it jump to client's then stop at log = fromServer.readInt();

    Please post the printout that shows when the writes and reads are being done and also shows what (the contents of the data) was written and read.

    The bits and pieces of code that you post are not helpful in understanding when those statements are execute or in what order they are executed. Data must be written before it can be read.

    That debug printout does not say enough about what is happening.
    What value was read for the log?
    What value was written for the message?
    Which client sent the message?
    Which message was received from what client?

    There is no way I can use the posted code for testing. You need to post all of the code that will compile and execute.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: can someone help me in this server and multi client

    Here's a sample of better debug printout. Each Client and HAC has a unique id so their messages can be identified. There is more that needs to be shown, but this is a start.
    Running: java ServerClient2

    1 C reading log
    0 C reading log
    S writing chatlog=0
    1 C read log=0
    0 HAC socket=Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=52006,localport=8000]
    S writing chatlog=0
    1 HAC socket=Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=52007,localport=8000]
    0 C read log=0
    0 HAC Success entering Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=52006,localport=8000]
    0 HAC reading log
    1 HAC Success entering Socket[addr=/127.0.0.1,port=52007,localport=8000]
    1 HAC reading log
    0 C writing log to the server log=0
    0 C wrote 0
    0 C writing message to the server 1-200
    1 HAC Success read log from client = 0
    1 HAC reading msg from client store in allmessage[chatlog]
    0 C wrote msg=1-200
    0 HAC Success read log from client = 340269
    0 HAC reading msg from client store in allmessage[chatlog]
    0 C reading log
    1 C writing log to the server log=0
    1 C wrote 0
    1 C writing message to the server 1-500
    1 C wrote msg=1-500
    1 C reading log
    0 C writing log to the server log=0
    0 C wrote 0
    0 C writing message to the server 2-200
    0 C wrote msg=2-200
    0 C reading log
    1 C writing log to the server log=0
    1 C wrote 0
    1 C writing message to the server 2-500
    1 C wrote msg=2-500
    1 C reading log

    No, my version does not execute correctly with 2 clients.

    Look at the debug print out.
    Does the data that is read match what was written? For example If the client writes a number, does the server read that number?
