yes :p

Umm, you cold have a look at the API javadocs for io classes, or
alternatively the tutorial on the sun site is pretty good.

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/essential/io/index.html (for a java
IO tutorial)

and:

http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.2/javadoc/ for the
ServletOutputStream doc

All fairly straightforward.
