    Default Multiple BufferedReaders?

    I am trying to create a test for my application, and I basically want to have the following output:

    Enter the file location:
    *User enters the file location, next thing printed is:

    Instructions: *wait for response*

    I have

    Java Code:
    System.out.print("Enter your file Location, starting at the C: level: ");
          //  open up standard input
          BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
          String fileLoc = null;
          //  read the username from the command-line; need to use try/catch with the
          //  readLine() method
          try {
             fileLoc = br.readLine();
             System.out.println("File loaded succesfully");
          } catch (IOException ioe) {
             System.out.println("IO error trying to read your file location");
    How would I create another output asking for data? Would I create another BufferedReader?

    I wouldn't use BufferedReader to do this, it would be best to use Scanner. It is much easier to get user's input using Scanner and requires less code.
