    I have defined two Handlers MainHandler and Child Handler

    My Thread XYZ is able to send data to main via MainHandler but I also want to communicate to Thread from Main

    the problem faced by me is that my Thread has a infinite loop which is in its run() routine
    how Can I have an infinite loop inside my Thread and also transfer data to it via main code

    public class XYZ extends Thread
    {
    @Override
    public void run()
    {
    while(true)
    {
    //communicate with the server and pass the data to main via MainHandler.sendMessage(myData)
    //Thread.sleep(defined_Interval);
    .........
    }
    }
    }



    I tried by adding
    Looper.prepare();
    ChildHandler = new Handler() {
    public void handleMessage(Message msg)
    {
    Log.i("TCP", "Got an incoming message from the main thread - " + (String)msg.obj);
    }
    };
    Looper.loop();
    while(true)
    {
    //my code
    }

    but my part of code doesnt work and when I try this

    Looper.prepare();
    ChildHandler = new Handler() {
    public void handleMessage(Message msg)
    {
    Log.i("TCP", "Got an incoming message from the main thread - " + (String)msg.obj);
    }
    };

    while(true)
    {
    //my code
    }
    Looper.loop();


    it says that Unreachable code at Looper.Loop(); line
