java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: ""

Hi everybody!
Please help me to overcome below runtime exception.
Actually it is a simple program on basics.
I want to print odd nos upto which the user asks and after printing the task, again
i will ask user whether he want to continue again and the process is repeated.
My code is working first time normally but after user says yes(y) for continuing again my code producing an error. The Integer.parseInt taking space as default string and producing java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "".
So please help me out, this is my code: in this i created objects using array variables as iam repeating the loop.

import java.io.*;

class Oddnos
private int n;

Oddnos(int n)

void odds()

for(int i=1;i<=n;i++)
System.out.print(" "+i);

class UOdd
static int count=0,l=0;
public static void main(String args[])throws IOException,NumberFormatException

BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
Oddnos[] obj = new Oddnos[50];

System.out.print("Enter the no. upto which u want the odd no's: ");
obj[l] = new Oddnos(Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()));


System.out.print("\n \n Do u want to continue again (y/n): ");
char x = (char)br.read();

if(x=='y' || x=='Y')
System.out.println("\n \n Thank u \n");

Note: The code produces same error even though i created one object and repeated in the loop.

When you're asked to continue yes or no you actually type something like this:


i.e. *two* characters: the Y character and the enter key. The Y character is
read but that newline character is still there as if it were an empty line. The
next call to that readLine() method sees that newline character and assumes
an empty line, hence the "" which is not a valid integer number.

The remedy is simple: invoke that readLine() method after you've read that single
Y (or whatever) character to get rid of that newline character in the input buffer.

kind regards,
