Uses of Closeable in java.io
 

Classes in java.io that implement Closeable
 class BufferedInputStream

          Reads text from a character-input stream, buffering characters so as to provide for the efficient reading of characters, arrays, and lines.
 class BufferedWriter
          Writes text to a character-output stream, buffering characters so as to provide for the efficient writing of single characters, arrays, and strings.
 class ByteArrayInputStream
          A ByteArrayInputStream contains an internal buffer that contains bytes that may be read from the stream.
 class ByteArrayOutputStream
          This class implements an output stream in which the data is written into a byte array.

          A data input stream lets an application read primitive Java data types from an underlying input stream in a machine-independent way.

 class FileReader
          Convenience class for reading character files.
 class FileWriter

 class FilterInputStream
          A FilterInputStream contains some other input stream, which it uses as its basic source of data, possibly transforming the data along the way or providing additional functionality.
 class FilterOutputStream
          This class is the superclass of all classes that filter output streams.
 class FilterReader
          Abstract class for reading filtered character streams.
 class FilterWriter
          Abstract class for writing filtered character streams.
 class InputStream
          This abstract class is the superclass of all classes representing an input stream of bytes.
 class InputStreamReader
          An InputStreamReader is a bridge from byte streams to character streams: It reads bytes and decodes them into characters using a specified charset.
 class LineNumberInputStream
          Deprecated. This class incorrectly assumes that bytes adequately represent characters. As of JDK 1.1, the preferred way to operate on character streams is via the new character-stream classes, which include a class for counting line numbers.
 class LineNumberReader
          A buffered character-input stream that keeps track of line numbers.
 class ObjectInputStream
          An ObjectInputStream deserializes primitive data and objects previously written using an ObjectOutputStream.
 class ObjectOutputStream

 class OutputStreamWriter
          An OutputStreamWriter is a bridge from character streams to byte streams: Characters written to it are encoded into bytes using a specified charset.
 class PipedInputStream

 class PipedReader
          Piped character-input streams.

          Instances of this class support both reading and writing to a random access file.
 class Reader
          Abstract class for reading character streams.
 class SequenceInputStream
          A SequenceInputStream represents the logical concatenation of other input streams.
 class StringBufferInputStream
          Deprecated. This class does not properly convert characters into bytes. As of JDK 1.1, the preferred way to create a stream from a string is via the StringReader class.
 class StringReader
          A character stream whose source is a string.
 class StringWriter
          A character stream that collects its output in a string buffer, which can then be used to construct a string.
 class Writer
          Abstract class for writing to character streams.
