ObjectOutputStream Class writeByte() method

  • writeByte() method is available in java.io package.
  • writeByte() method is used to write a byte (i.e. 8 bit).
  • writeByte() 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.
  • writeByte() method may throw an exception at the time of writing byte.
    IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while writing to the output stream.


    public void writeByte(int value);


  • int value – represents an integer that denotes a byte to be written.

Return value:

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


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void writeByte(int value) method of
// ObjectOutputStream

import java.io.*;

public class WriteByteOfOOS {
 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 the byte to the stream		


  // By using readByte() method is to 
  // read the byte
  byte b1 = (byte) obj_in_stm.readByte();
  byte b2 = (byte) obj_in_stm.readByte();

  System.out.println("obj_in_stm.readByte(): " + b1);
  System.out.println("obj_in_stm.readByte(): " + b2);

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




obj_in_stm.readByte(): 65
obj_in_stm.readByte(): 97
Stream Shutdown...
