Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-158) ReaderInputStream implementation
Date Wed, 28 May 2008 15:19:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-158?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12600501#action_12600501

Matt Benson commented on IO-158:
--------------------------------

I like the idea of using Piped*Streams, actually... not here in particular but just in general.
 Again, it's simply been my experience that they suffer from synchronization issues, which
you must work around if you want to reliably read all the data.  As a result I wouldn't use
them unless I truly needed them.

> 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.
