Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-92) Add DeferredPeriodicOutputStream
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2007 15:15:51 GMT


Niall Pemberton commented on IO-92:

Sorry I don't really see the point of this - how is this different from decorating a FileOutputStream
with a BufferedOutputStream? Also I don't see the point in implementing DataOutput - since
you can decorate any output stream using DataOutputStream to achieve this.

File myFile = ...
OutputStream out = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(myFile));
DataOutput dataOut = new DataOutputStream(out);

> I've extended the ThresholdingOutputStream class with a new class which
> behaves different from DeferredFileOutputStream:
> - when the stream is closed, the content stored in memory is *always* flushed to disk
(in DeferredFileOutputStream, instead, if the treshold
> is not reached data is lost)
> - DeferredFileOutputStream maintains data in memory only until the treshold value has
been reached, then it immediately writes every byte
> to disk. This new implementation, instead, caches treshold bytes in memory, and every
time that value is reached (that is, treshold, 2 * threshold, etc), it flushes data to disk.
In other words it acts as a cache.
> - It implements the interface, that is, it provides utility methods
to write all primitive types (e.g. short, byte, char, int, float, long, double and String
in different formats)
