ObjectInputStream Class readFloat() method

  • readFloat() method is available in java.io package.
  • readFloat() method is used to read 4 bytes (i.e. 32 bit) of float value from this ObjectInputStream stream.
  • readFloat() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • readFloat() method may throw an exception at the time of reading float.
    • IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while performing.
    • EOFException: This exception may throw when this stream has reached its end of the file.

Syntax:

    public float readFloat();

Parameter(s):

  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of the method is float, it returns the 4 bytes float value read.

Example:

// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of float readFloat() method of ObjectInputStream

import java.io.*;

public class ReadFloatOfOIS {
 public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
  // Instantiates ObjectOutputStream , ObjectInputStream 
  // FileInputStream and FileOutputStream

  FileOutputStream file_out_stm = new FileOutputStream("D:\\includehelp.txt");
  ObjectOutputStream obj_out_stm = new ObjectOutputStream(file_out_stm);
  FileInputStream file_in_stm = new FileInputStream("D:\\includehelp.txt");
  ObjectInputStream obj_in_stm = new ObjectInputStream(file_in_stm);

  // By using writeFloat() method is to write
  // float to the obj_out_stm stream
  obj_out_stm.writeFloat(10.0f);
  obj_out_stm.writeFloat(20.0f);
  obj_out_stm.writeFloat(30.0f);
  obj_out_stm.writeFloat(40.0f);

  obj_out_stm.flush();

  while (obj_in_stm.available() > 0) {
   // By using readFloat() method is to read
   //  double from the obj_in_stm
   float val = (float) obj_in_stm.readFloat();
   System.out.println("obj_in_stm.readFloat(): " + val);
  }

  // By using close() method is to 
  // close all the streams 
  file_in_stm.close();
  file_out_stm.close();
  obj_in_stm.close();
  obj_out_stm.close();
 }
}

Output

obj_in_stm.readFloat(): 10.0
obj_in_stm.readFloat(): 20.0
obj_in_stm.readFloat(): 30.0
obj_in_stm.readFloat(): 40.0
