ByteArrayInputStream

extends InputStream

   ↳ java.io.InputStream
     ↳ java.io.ByteArrayInputStream

Class Overview

A ByteArrayInputStream contains an internal buffer that contains bytes that may be read from the stream. An internal counter keeps track of the next byte to be supplied by the read method.

Closing a ByteArrayInputStream has no effect. The methods in this class can be called after the stream has been closed without generating an IOException.

Summary

Fields
protected byte[] buf An array of bytes that was provided by the creator of the stream.
protected int count The index one greater than the last valid character in the input stream buffer.
protected int mark The currently marked position in the stream.
protected int pos The index of the next character to read from the input stream buffer.
Public Constructors
ByteArrayInputStream(byte[] buf)
Creates a ByteArrayInputStream so that it uses buf as its buffer array.
ByteArrayInputStream(byte[] buf, int offset, int length)
Creates ByteArrayInputStream that uses buf as its buffer array.
Public Methods
synchronized int available()
Returns the number of remaining bytes that can be read (or skipped over) from this input stream.
void close()
Closing a ByteArrayInputStream has no effect.
void mark(int readAheadLimit)
Set the current marked position in the stream.
boolean markSupported()
Tests if this InputStream supports mark/reset.
synchronized int read()
Reads the next byte of data from this input stream.
synchronized int read(byte[] b, int off, int len)
Reads up to len bytes of data into an array of bytes from this input stream.
synchronized void reset()
Resets the buffer to the marked position.
synchronized long skip(long n)
Skips n bytes of input from this input stream.

Fields

protected byte[] buf

An array of bytes that was provided by the creator of the stream. Elements buf[0] through buf[count-1] are the only bytes that can ever be read from the stream; element buf[pos] is the next byte to be read.

protected int count

The index one greater than the last valid character in the input stream buffer. This value should always be nonnegative and not larger than the length of buf. It is one greater than the position of the last byte within buf that can ever be read from the input stream buffer.

protected int mark

The currently marked position in the stream. ByteArrayInputStream objects are marked at position zero by default when constructed. They may be marked at another position within the buffer by the mark() method. The current buffer position is set to this point by the reset() method.

If no mark has been set, then the value of mark is the offset passed to the constructor (or 0 if the offset was not supplied).

protected int pos

The index of the next character to read from the input stream buffer. This value should always be nonnegative and not larger than the value of count. The next byte to be read from the input stream buffer will be buf[pos].

Public Constructors

public ByteArrayInputStream (byte[] buf)

Creates a ByteArrayInputStream so that it uses buf as its buffer array. The buffer array is not copied. The initial value of pos is 0 and the initial value of count is the length of buf.

Parameters
buf the input buffer.

public ByteArrayInputStream (byte[] buf, int offset, int length)

Creates ByteArrayInputStream that uses buf as its buffer array. The initial value of pos is offset and the initial value of count is the minimum of offset+length and buf.length. The buffer array is not copied. The buffer's mark is set to the specified offset.

Parameters
buf the input buffer.
offset the offset in the buffer of the first byte to read.
length the maximum number of bytes to read from the buffer.

Public Methods

public synchronized int available ()

Returns the number of remaining bytes that can be read (or skipped over) from this input stream.

The value returned is count - pos, which is the number of bytes remaining to be read from the input buffer.

Returns
  • the number of remaining bytes that can be read (or skipped over) from this input stream without blocking.

public void close ()

Closing a ByteArrayInputStream has no effect. The methods in this class can be called after the stream has been closed without generating an IOException.

Throws
IOException

public void mark (int readAheadLimit)

Set the current marked position in the stream. ByteArrayInputStream objects are marked at position zero by default when constructed. They may be marked at another position within the buffer by this method.

If no mark has been set, then the value of the mark is the offset passed to the constructor (or 0 if the offset was not supplied).

Note: The readAheadLimit for this class has no meaning.

Parameters
readAheadLimit the maximum limit of bytes that can be read before the mark position becomes invalid.

public boolean markSupported ()

Tests if this InputStream supports mark/reset. The markSupported method of ByteArrayInputStream always returns true.

Returns
  • true if this stream instance supports the mark and reset methods; false otherwise.

public synchronized int read ()

Reads the next byte of data from this input stream. The value byte is returned as an int in the range 0 to 255. If no byte is available because the end of the stream has been reached, the value -1 is returned.

This read method cannot block.

Returns
  • the next byte of data, or -1 if the end of the stream has been reached.

public synchronized int read (byte[] b, int off, int len)

Reads up to len bytes of data into an array of bytes from this input stream. If pos equals count, then -1 is returned to indicate end of file. Otherwise, the number k of bytes read is equal to the smaller of len and count-pos. If k is positive, then bytes buf[pos] through buf[pos+k-1] are copied into b[off] through b[off+k-1] in the manner performed by System.arraycopy. The value k is added into pos and k is returned.

This read method cannot block.

Parameters
b the buffer into which the data is read.
off the start offset in the destination array b
len the maximum number of bytes read.
Returns
  • the total number of bytes read into the buffer, or -1 if there is no more data because the end of the stream has been reached.
Throws
NullPointerException If b is null.
IndexOutOfBoundsException If off is negative, len is negative, or len is greater than b.length - off

public synchronized void reset ()

Resets the buffer to the marked position. The marked position is 0 unless another position was marked or an offset was specified in the constructor.

public synchronized long skip (long n)

Skips n bytes of input from this input stream. Fewer bytes might be skipped if the end of the input stream is reached. The actual number k of bytes to be skipped is equal to the smaller of n and count-pos. The value k is added into pos and k is returned.

Parameters
n the number of bytes to be skipped.
Returns
  • the actual number of bytes skipped.
