I am getting input / send output thru socket.... how can i use ByteArrayInputStream and ByteArrayOutputStream to get the input data from socket??? how can i combine a stream of data to be send to socket using ByteArrayInputStream and ByteArrayOutputStream ???
See the problem is that if I use other Streams and their read method has one problem it blocks the stream till it:
1. either gets some bytes
2. or gets some exeption
though my objective is to get immediate information wheather their is some data available their or not? I was thinking of using ByteArrayInputStream Read method and will try to read first byte to see if it is -1 or not..but could able to understand how to use it...or is their any other way out..
Can you please help me?
