Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-158) ReaderInputStream implementation
Date Wed, 28 May 2008 04:07:45 GMT


Jacob Kjome commented on IO-158:

Well, for one, it doesn't do Stirng.getBytes().  Besides that it seems quite simple and straightforward,
with no external dependencies, and would pass all the Ant tests with one minor tweak to account
for the testReadZero() case.  I guess you probably have more experience with the Piped streams
than I do, so I'll defer to your expertise in regard to their trickiness.

I'm really just putting it out there as an option that wasn't originally listed and providing
information for others to make an informed decision.  I'm not claiming to be any sort of expert
and I'm not trying to evangelize Netbeans/Openide (I have no affiliation).  I am curious as
to what people think about the approach.  But, ultimately, you either like it or you don't.

> 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.
