I am writing to a ByteArrayOutputStream after every write I want to check how many bytes has been written.

So I call ByteArrayOutputStreams method size(), but instead of returning an int, it is returning a null pointer value.

Would be gald of any help in the correct way in calling the method size.

Thanks Tony

Please show us your code. A method that returns an int can not return a null value. Are you sure that you initialized the ByteArrayOutputStream correctly?

Are you getting a nullpointer exception?

Thanks for replying, I have a problem in that I cannot post the code.

I am using a wrapper that someone else has built. The Data is written to the ByteArrayOutputStream, which writes it to a Database Clob. That bit works.

Its just trying to return bytearraysize returns a null pointerexception.

Thanks for any help

Found the problem, as I am writing to a database outputstraem, I am not using the ByteArrayOutputStream, so of course it will return a null pointer exception.
