Course Description

In this nine-video course, you will be focusing on Java's parallel class hierarchies for working with byte and character data and the various variants available to you. To begin, participants will learn how buffered stream handling saves on unnecessary input-output (IO). Learn how to use the BufferedInputStream and BufferedOuputStream classes to interact efficiently with byte streams, and then to use the BufferedReader and BufferedWriter classes to interact efficiently with character streams. As you progress, you will explore how to use the DataOutputStream class to write primitive types and strings to byte strings, and the DataInputStream class to read primitive types and strings from byte streams. This leads participants to utilize the ObjectOutputStream class to write objects of any type to byte streams and the ObjectInputStream class to read objects of any type from byte streams. Finally, you will implement the Serializable interface in user-defined classes so that they can be written to and read from using ObjectOutputStream and ObjectInputStream objects.
