Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-158) ReaderInputStream implementation
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2008 21:50:46 GMT

Andreas Veithen commented on IO-158:
------------------------------------

In my opinion, design-wise the best alternative would be to use the java.nio.charset classes.
Some time ago I used this approach to write an OutputStream implementation that decodes the
stream, decomposes it into lines and sends them to a logger. I've refactored this code to
isolate the character decoding part. This gives a WriterOutputStream, which would be the natural
counterpart to the ReaderInputStream discussed here. The code can be found here (I agree to
donate it to Commons IO):

> The standard Java class InputStreamReader converts a Reader into an InputStream. In some
cases it is necessary to do the reverse, i.e. to convert a Reader into an InputStream. Several
frameworks and libraries have their own implementation of this functionality (google for "ReaderInputStream").
Among these are at least four Apache projects: Ant, iBatis, James and XMLBeans. Commons IO
would be a good place to share a common implementation.
