The Java.io.InputStream class is the superclass of all classes representing an input stream of bytes.Applications that need to define a subclass of InputStream must always provide a method that returns the next byte of input.
Following is the declaration for Java.io.InputStream class:
public abstract class InputStream extends Object implements Closeable
|S.N.||Constructor & Description|
|S.N.||Method & Description|
|1|| int available() |
This method eturns an estimate of the number of bytes that can be read (or skipped over) from this input stream without blocking by the next invocation of a method for this input stream.
|2|| void close() |
This method closes this input stream and releases any system resources associated with the stream.
|3|| void mark(int readlimit) |
This method marks the current position in this input stream.
|4|| boolean markSupported() |
This method tests if this input stream supports the mark and reset methods.
|5|| abstract int read() |
This method reads the next byte of data from the input stream.
|6|| int read(byte b) |
This method reads some number of bytes from the input stream and stores them into the buffer array b.
|7|| int read(byte b, int off, int len) |
This method reads up to len bytes of data from the input stream into an array of bytes.
|8|| void reset() |
This method repositions this stream to the position at the time the mark method was last called on this input stream.
|9|| long skip(long n) |
This method skips over and discards n bytes of data from this input stream..
This class inherits methods from the following classes:
