I am getting familiar serialization API's in JDK. I have a simple question regarding implementation of java.io.DataOutPutStream writeXXX operations.

Here is the implementation for this API


Why there is a bitwise & with 0xFF ?

Edit : out.write will only write a byte and bitwise & with 0xFF will return a byte

SCJP 1.4
