i tried looking at the api and noticed that its methods are very similar if not exactly the same with InputStream's methods... does anyone here know why they had to subclass InputStream with FilterInputStream without providing any new functionalities? please correct me if im wrong... thanks!
HI Paul, FilterInputStream and InputStream have major functionality differences. They might have the same method signatures but the method guts are completely different for at least 80% of the code! Regards, Manfred.
