Class DigestOutputStream

All Implemented Interfaces:
Closeable, Flushable, AutoCloseable

public class DigestOutputStream extends FilterOutputStream
A transparent stream that updates the associated message digest using the bits going through the stream.

To complete the message digest computation, call one of the digest methods on the associated message digest after your calls to one of this digest output stream's write methods.

It is possible to turn this stream on or off (see on). When it is on, a call to one of the write methods results in an update on the message digest. But when it is off, the message digest is not updated. The default is for the stream to be on.
