Example 1: use of getBytesWritten() function




// Java program to describe the use
// of getBytesWritten() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
        throws UnsupportedEncodingException,
               DataFormatException
    {
  
        // compress the data
  
        // deflater
        Deflater d = new Deflater();
  
        // get the text
        String pattern = "GeeksforGeeks", text = "";
  
        // generate the text
        for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++)
            text += pattern;
  
        // set the input for deflator
        d.setInput(text.getBytes("UTF-8"));
  
        // finish
        d.finish();
  
        // output bytes
        byte output[] = new byte[1024];
  
        // compress the data
        int size = d.deflate(output);
  
        // end
        d.end();
  
        // end of compression
  
        // use Inflater to get back the original data
  
        // Inflater
        Inflater i = new Inflater();
  
        // set the input for inflator
        i.setInput(output);
  
        // output bytes
        byte inflater_output[] = new byte[1024];
  
        // uncompress the data
        int org_size = i.inflate(inflater_output);
  
        // output of inflater and deflater
        System.out.println("Compressed output of deflater : "
                           + new String(output));
        System.out.println("Compressed output of Inflater : "
                           + new String(inflater_output, "UTF-8"));
  
        // get the total number of uncompressed bytes output so far
        System.out.println("Bytes Written value :"
                           + i.getBytesWritten());
  
        // end
        i.end();
    }
}
