Someone can help me. I want transfer files by socket (any file). I thought in use a class of hierarchy of InputStream, but I encontered only the method avaliable() where this return an int with size of archieve. I believe that I have use an array of bytes to pass by socket but how I will get bytes ?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You'd use a FileInputStream to read the bytes of the file into a byte[].
