The Byte Stream Classes
Byte streams are defined by using two class hierarchies. At the top are two abstract classes: InputStream and OutputStream.
|BufferedInputStream||Buffered input stream|
|BufferedOutputStream||Buffered output stream|
|ByteArrayInputStream||Input stream that reads from a byte array|
|ByteArrayOutputStream||Output stream that writes to a byte array|
|DataInputStream||An input stream that contains methods for reading the Java standard data types|
|DataOutputStream||An output stream that contains methods for writing the Java standard data types|
|FileInputStream||Input stream that reads from a file|
|FileOutputStream||Output stream that writes to a file|
|InputStream||Abstract class that describes stream input|
|ObjectInputStream||Input stream for objects|
|ObjectOutputStream||Output stream for objects|
|OutputStream||Abstract class that describes stream output|
|PrintStream||Output stream that contains print( ) and println( )|
|PushbackInputStream||Input stream that supports one-byte "unget," which returns a byte to the input stream|
|RandomAccessFile||Supports random access file I/O|
|SequenceInputStream||Input stream that is a combination of two or more input streams that will be read sequentially, one after the other|
This abstract class is the superclass of all classes representing an output stream of bytes. An output stream accepts output bytes and sends them to some sink. Applications that need to define a subclass of OutputStream must always provide at least a method that writes one byte of output.
- Closes this output stream and releases any system resources associated with this stream.
- Flushes this output stream and forces any buffered output bytes to be written out.
void write(byte b)
- Writes b.length bytes from the specified byte array to this output stream.
void write(byte b, int off, int len)
- Writes len bytes from the specified byte array starting at offset off to this output stream.
abstract void write(int b)
- Writes the specified byte to this output stream.
