Example

The following example shows the usage of java.io.OutputStreamWriter.close() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.*;

public class OutputStreamWriterDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      try {

         // create a new OutputStreamWriter
         OutputStream os = new FileOutputStream("test.txt");
         OutputStreamWriter writer = new OutputStreamWriter(os);

         // create a new FileInputStream to read what we write
         FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream("test.txt");

         // write something in the file
         writer.write(70);

         // flush the stream
         writer.flush();

         // read what we write
         System.out.println("" + (char) in.read());

         // close the stream
         System.out.println("Closing Stream...");
         writer.close();
         System.out.println("Stream closed.");

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