Dear friends,

However, it runs correctly only for one iteration of the loop, in the next iteration it takes the old value of the String from the console and does not wait for reading the new value.

My guess would be that the readLine reads the newline character that you need to type after the "y"/"n".

You may want to change the System.in.read call into a readLine as well, and then extract the first character from it.
