    Help wanted on Client-Server

    I'm in the early stages of writing a client-server program. I've got the client and the server communicating (I think). I send text from the client to the server. I then want the server side BufferedReader
    in

    to be read into a variable. I've tried doing it using
    String inputLine = in.readLine()

    but it keeps throwing an IOException. I can't work out why.


    try {
    PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(clientSocket.getOutputStream(), true);
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(clientSocket.getInputStream()));
    System.out.println("The printwriter and bufferedreader have been set up.");
    String inputLine, outputLine;
    inputLine = in.readLine();
    System.out.println(inputLine);
    } catch (IOException e) {
    System.out.println(e);
    }



    The serverSocket and socket have been set up properly as far as I can tell. It's just the above portion of code that seems to be causing a problem. My knowledge of Java is fairly basic at the moment, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
