The following example shows the usage of java.io.ObjectInputStream.readByte() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.*;

public class ObjectInputStreamDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      byte b = 'F';
      try {

         // create a new file with an ObjectOutputStream
         FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("test.txt");
         ObjectOutputStream oout = new ObjectOutputStream(out);

         // write something in the file
         oout.writeByte(b);
         oout.writeByte('A');
         oout.flush();

         // create an ObjectInputStream for the file we created before
         ObjectInputStream ois =
                 new ObjectInputStream(new FileInputStream("test.txt"));

         // read and print a byte
         System.out.println("" + (char) ois.readByte());

         // read and print a byte
         System.out.println("" + (char) ois.readByte());

      } catch (Exception ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
      }

   }
}

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