The Java.io.PipedOutputStream class is a piped output stream that can be connected to a piped input stream to create a communications pipe.Following are the important points about PipedOutputStream:
The piped output stream is the sending end of the pipe.
Attempting to use both objects from a single thread is not recommended as it may deadlock the thread.
Data is written to a PipedOutputStream object by one thread and data is read from the connected PipedInputStream by some other thread.
The pipe is said to be broken if a thread that was reading data bytes from the connected piped input stream is no longer alive.
Following is the declaration for Java.io.PipedOutputStream class:
public class PipedOutputStream extends OutputStream
|S.N.||Constructor & Description|
This creates a piped output stream that is not yet connected to a piped input stream.
|2||PipedOutputStream(PipedInputStream snk) |
This creates a piped output stream connected to the specified piped input stream.
|S.N.||Method & Description|
|1|| void close() |
This method closes this piped output stream and releases any system resources associated with this stream.
|2|| void connect(PipedInputStream snk) |
This method connects this piped output stream to a receiver.
|3|| void flush() |
This method flushes this output stream and forces any buffered output bytes to be written out.
|4|| void write(byte b, int off, int len) |
This method writes len bytes from the specified byte array starting at offset off to this piped output stream.
|5|| void write(int b) |
This method writes the specified byte to the piped output stream.
This class inherits methods from the following classes:
