Java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream class in Java

This class implements a stream filter for reading compressed data in the GZIP file format.

Constructors

  • GZIPInputStream(InputStream in) : Creates a new input stream with a default buffer size.
  • GZIPInputStream(InputStream in, int size) : Creates a new input stream with the specified buffer size.

Methods :

  • void close() : Closes this input stream and releases any system resources associated with the stream.
    Syntax :public void close()
               throws IOException
    Specified by:
    close in interface Closeable
    Specified by:
    close in interface AutoCloseable
    Overrides:
    close in class InflaterInputStream
    Throws:
    IOException 
  • int read(byte[] buf, int off, int len) : Reads uncompressed data into an array of bytes. If len is not zero, the method will block until some input can be decompressed; otherwise, no bytes are read and 0 is returned.
    Syntax :public int read(byte[] buf,
           int off,
           int len)
             throws IOException
    Overrides:
    read in class InflaterInputStream
    Parameters:
    buf - the buffer into which the data is read
    off - the start offset in the destination array b
    len - the maximum number of bytes read
    Returns:
    the actual number of bytes read, or -1 if the end of the
    compressed input stream is reached
    Throws:
    NullPointerException
    IndexOutOfBoundsException
    ZipException
    IOException
