I wanna create a client-server application and need to transfer various kinds of information between C-S, these information includes identity validation , talking and some others : And my question is : Can i declare numbers of input streams and output streams in a single socket connection just like "new data input stream(socket.getinput stream() )"? If yes , How can i do that ?If no, Does that mean i should creat numbers of input(output)streams for each kinds of information using numbers of socket connection ? I am looking forward to receiving your earliest reply . Thanks !

Not quite sure what you mean. I am assuming you have lots of different messages and want to create a new type of stream for each one, right?
If so, this is not how you really want to do it.
If you have different messages being sent from a client to a server, I recommend you wrap the message in XML.
<message_type_x>
<value>123</value>
</message_type_x>
<message_type_y>
<value>hello</value>
</message_type_y>
This will make your system to be scalable.
For further information out how to implement a client-server app see the following resources:
