Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-152) Add ByteArrayOutputStream.readFrom(InputStream)
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2008 21:34:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12556429#action_12556429

Niall Pemberton commented on IO-152:
------------------------------------

I understand the logical symmetry, but it still seems wrong that what is essentially a "write"
method method is named "read" rather than "write" and I do think it fits in eactly with all
the other "write" methods. On the IOException point then we should make this clear in the
javadocs

> It would be useful to have a ByteArrayOutputStream.readFrom(InputStream) method to mirror
the existing writeTo(OutputStream) method. A call like baos.readFrom(in) would be semantically
the same as IOUtils.copy(in, baos), but would avoid an extra in-memory copy of the stream
contents, as it could read bytes from the input stream directly into the internal ByteArrayOutputStream
buffers.
