public class FileOutputStreamAvailable extends FileOutputStream {

   public FileOutputStreamAvailable() throws Exception {
      super("C://test.txt");

      FileOutputStream fos = null;
      FileOutputStreamAvailable fosa = null;

      try {
         
         // create new File input stream
         fosa = new FileOutputStreamAvailable();
         
         // read byte from file input stream
         fosa.finalize();
         
         // converts int to char
         System.out.println("Stream is closed successfully.");
         
      } catch(Exception ex) {

      }
   }
