import java.io.ByteArrayInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

public class ByteArrayInputStreamDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
      
      byte[] buf = {65, 66, 67, 68, 69};
      ByteArrayInputStream bais = null;
      
      try{
         
         // create new byte array input stream
         bais = new ByteArrayInputStream(buf);
         
         int value = 0;
         
         // read till the end of the stream
         while((value = bais.read())!=-1)
         {
            
            // skip single byte
            bais.skip(1);
            System.out.println(value);
         }
      }catch(Exception e){

         // if I/O error occurs
         e.printStackTrace();
      }finally{
         if(bais!=null)
            bais.close();
      }   
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

65
67
