> h5. BACKGROUND
> I have an application that reads data from a stream. When data is available, I can read
from the stream perfectly fine. However, sometimes the stream will remain open with no data,
in which case reading from the stream blocks. I would like to use the {{available()}} method
on the stream to first check whether anything can be read before attempting to read.
> h5. PROBLEM
> When I attempt to use the {{available()}} method on my {{InputStream}} instance it returns
{{0}}, i.e. no data available, even when I can successfully call {{read(...)}} and read data
off the stream. 
> h5. INVESTIGATION INTO PROBLEM
> I have traced the {{available()}} method on my {{InputStream}} instance through several
layers of wrapper classes around more {{InputStream}} instances. Each layer's {{available()}}
method simply calls into its wrapped {{InputStream}}'s {{available()}} method. That is, until
I reach the {{IdentityInputStream.available()}} method. The latter does this:
> {code:java}
>     @Override
>     public int available() throws IOException {
>         if (this.in instanceof BufferInfo) {
>             return ((BufferInfo) this.in).length();
>         } else {
>             return 0;
>         }
>     }
> {code}
> The {{in}} in the above code is a {{SessionInputBufferImpl}}, which has a few methods
that are seemingly relevant to this:
> {code:java}
>     @Override
>     public int capacity() {
>         return this.buffer.length;
>     }
>     @Override
>     public int length() {
>         return this.bufferlen - this.bufferpos;
>     }
>     @Override
>     public int available() {
>         return capacity() - length();
>     }
> {code}
> h5. QUESTION
> Why does {{IdentityInputStream.available()}} call {{((BufferInfo) this.in).length()}}
instead of {{((BufferInfo) this.in).available()}}? The former returns {{0}} when I call it
on a stream that has data which can be read, but has not been; the latter returns a number
greater than {{0}}.
