Java ReaderInputStream-class And Method Code Example

Here is an example of how you might use the ReaderInputStream class from the package in Java:


public class MyClass {

    public void doSomethingWithReaderInputStream() throws Exception {
        // Create a string reader
        String data = "Hello World";
        Reader reader = new StringReader(data);
        // Create a reader input stream
        ReaderInputStream readerInputStream = new ReaderInputStream(reader);

        // Read data from the reader input stream
        int value =;
        while (value != -1) {
            value =;

The ReaderInputStream class is a utility class that adapts a Reader to an InputStream. In this example, we created a StringReader and pass it to the ReaderInputStream constructor, it will convert the stream of characters into bytes, so that you can read the data from the Reader using the read() method of an InputStream.

The ReaderInputStream class also provides a skip(long n) method to skip a specific number of bytes and available() method to return the number of bytes that can be read from the stream without blocking.

You can also pass a Charset object to the constructor to specify the character set to be used for the conversion.
