Example

The following example shows the usage of java.io.ObjectOutputStream.drain() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.*;

public class ObjectOutputStreamDemo extends ObjectOutputStream{

   public ObjectOutputStreamDemo(OutputStream out) throws IOException {
      super(out);
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {

      int i = 319874;
      try {

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

         // write something in the file
         oout.writeInt(i);
         oout.writeInt(1653984);
         
         // drain the stream
         oout.drain();

         // close the stream
         oout.close();

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

         // read and print an int
         System.out.println("" + ois.readInt());

         // read and print an int
         System.out.println("" + ois.readInt());

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

   }
}

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