ObjectOutputStream Class flush() method

  • flush() method is available in java.io package.
  • flush() method is used to flush this stream and write bytes immediately of any buffered output to the underlying stream.
  • flush() 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.
  • flush() method may throw an exception at the time of flushing the stream.
    IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while writing to the output stream.


    public void flush();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is void, it returns nothing.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void flush() method of ObjectOutputStream

import java.io.*;

public class FlushOfOOS {
 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 writeByte() method is to
  // write byte to the stream		

  // By using flush() method is to
  // flush the stream immediately
  System.out.println("Stream Flushed...");

  // By using readByte() method is to 
  // read the byte and convert it into
  // char
  char ch = (char) obj_in_stm.read();
  System.out.println("ch: " + ch + " ");

  // By using close() method is to 
  // close all the streams 
  System.out.println("Stream Shutdown... ");



Stream Flushed...
ch: A 
Stream Shutdown...
