Hello guys, I have the following code:

 import java.net.ServerSocket;
import java.net.Socket;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.io.PrintWriter;
public class SimpleStockServer 
   private static String [][] stockDB = {{"red", "12"},
                                        {"orange", "2"},
                                        {"yellow", "4"},
                                       {"green", "109"},
                                         {"blue", "24"},                                   
                                        {"indigo", "0"},
                                       {"violet", "7"}};   
   public static void main(String[] args) 
        String result = "no result";
        ServerSocket connection = new ServerSocket(4000);
        Socket s = connection.accept();
        BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
        PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(s.getOutputStream(), true);
        String shirtColour = in.readLine();   
        for(int i = 0; i < 7; ++i)
                result = stockDB[i][1];
        catch(IOException ioe){}        

I am writing a simple stock programme, basically i need to find out how much stock i have for a item in a certain colour. I need to write a very simple client program that will communicate with this server code(above). I do not need a GUI, the program does not need any levels of sophistication, all that needs to happen is i make a simple query requesting the number of shirts: ie Query- red Response - 12. I do not know where to begin writing the client side code! I would be extremly grateful for some help....
