ObjectOutputStream Class writeChar() method

  • writeChar() method is available in java.io package.
  • writeChar() method is used to write 2 bytes of a character value.
  • writeChar() 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.
  • writeChar() method may throw an exception at the time of writing the character.
    IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while writing to the output stream.


    public void writeChar(int value);


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

Return value:

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


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

import java.io.*;

public class WriteCharOfOOS {
 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("C:\\includehelp.txt");
  ObjectInputStream obj_in_stm = new ObjectInputStream(file_in_stm);

  // By using writeChar() method is to
  // write the char to the stream		


  // By using readChar() method is to 
  // read the char 
  for (int i = 0; i < 4; ++i) {
   char ch = obj_in_stm.readChar();
   System.out.println("obj_in_stm.readChar(): " + ch);

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



obj_in_stm.readChar(): a
obj_in_stm.readChar(): d
obj_in_stm.readChar(): e
obj_in_stm.readChar(): b
Stream Shutdown...
