   public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
      
      byte[] bs = {65, 66, 67, 68, 69};
      ByteArrayOutputStream baos = null;
      
      try{

         // create new ByteArrayOutputStream
         baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
      
         // write byte array to the output stream
         baos.write(bs);
            
         // for each byte in the buffer
         for (byte b : baos.toByteArray())
         {
            // write byte in to output stream
            baos.write(b);
            
            // print every byte
            System.out.println(b);
         }
      }catch(Exception e){

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

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