public class ByteArrayInputStream extends InputStream
ByteArrayInputStreamcontains an internal buffer that contains bytes that may be read from the stream. An internal counter keeps track of the next byte to be supplied by the
Closing a ByteArrayInputStream has no effect. The methods in this class can be called after the stream has been closed without generating an IOException.
|Modifier and Type||Field and Description|
An array of bytes that was provided by the creator of the stream.
The index one greater than the last valid character in the input stream buffer.
The currently marked position in the stream.
The index of the next character to read from the input stream buffer.
