Class FileBackedOutputStream

    public final class FileBackedOutputStream
    extends java.io.OutputStream
    An OutputStream that starts buffering to a byte array, but switches to file buffering once the data reaches a configurable size.

    Temporary files created by this stream may live in the local filesystem until either:

    • reset() is called (removing the data in this stream and deleting the file), or...
    • this stream (or, more precisely, its asByteSource() view) is finalized during garbage collection, AND this stream was not constructed with the 1-arg constructor or the 2-arg constructor passing false in the second parameter.

    This class is thread-safe.

      Constructor Description
      FileBackedOutputStream​(int fileThreshold)
      Creates a new instance that uses the given file threshold, and does not reset the data when the ByteSource returned by asByteSource() is finalized.
      FileBackedOutputStream​(int fileThreshold, boolean resetOnFinalize)
      Creates a new instance that uses the given file threshold, and optionally resets the data when the ByteSource returned by asByteSource() is finalized.

      Modifier and Type Method Description
      ByteSource asByteSource()
      Returns a readable ByteSource view of the data that has been written to this stream.
      void close()  
      void flush()  
      void reset()
      Calls close() if not already closed, and then resets this object back to its initial state, for reuse.

      • FileBackedOutputStream

        public FileBackedOutputStream​(int fileThreshold)
        Creates a new instance that uses the given file threshold, and does not reset the data when the ByteSource returned by asByteSource() is finalized.
        Parameters:
        fileThreshold - the number of bytes before the stream should switch to buffering to a file
      • FileBackedOutputStream

        public FileBackedOutputStream​(int fileThreshold,
                                      boolean resetOnFinalize)
        Creates a new instance that uses the given file threshold, and optionally resets the data when the ByteSource returned by asByteSource() is finalized.
        Parameters:
        fileThreshold - the number of bytes before the stream should switch to buffering to a file
        resetOnFinalize - if true, the reset() method will be called when the ByteSource returned by asByteSource() is finalized.

      • reset

        public void reset()
                   throws java.io.IOException
        Calls close() if not already closed, and then resets this object back to its initial state, for reuse. If data was buffered to a file, it will be deleted.
        Throws:
        java.io.IOException - if an I/O error occurred while deleting the file buffer
