Class Overview

A stream wrapper that triggers actions on close() and EOF. Primarily used to auto-release an underlying connection when the response body is consumed or no longer needed.

This class is based on AutoCloseInputStream in HttpClient 3.1, but has notable differences. It does not allow mark/reset, distinguishes different kinds of event, and does not always close the underlying stream on EOF. That decision is left to the watcher.

Summary

Fields
protected InputStream wrappedStream The wrapped input stream, while accessible.
Public Constructors
EofSensorInputStream(InputStream in, EofSensorWatcher watcher)
Creates a new EOF sensor.
Public Methods
void abortConnection()
Aborts this stream.
int available()
Returns an estimated number of bytes that can be read or skipped without blocking for more input.
void close()
Closes this stream.
int read(byte[] b)
Equivalent to read(buffer, 0, buffer.length).
int read()
Reads a single byte from this stream and returns it as an integer in the range from 0 to 255.
int read(byte[] b, int off, int len)
Reads up to byteCount bytes from this stream and stores them in the byte array buffer starting at byteOffset.
void releaseConnection()
Same as close().
Protected Methods
void checkAbort()
Detects stream abort and notifies the watcher.
void checkClose()
Detects stream close and notifies the watcher.
void checkEOF(int eof)

Fields

protected InputStream wrappedStream

Added in API level 1

The wrapped input stream, while accessible. The value changes to null when the wrapped stream becomes inaccessible.

Public Constructors

public EofSensorInputStream (InputStream in, EofSensorWatcher watcher)

Added in API level 1

Creates a new EOF sensor. If no watcher is passed, the underlying stream will simply be closed when EOF is detected or close is called. Otherwise, the watcher decides whether the underlying stream should be closed before detaching from it.

Parameters
in the wrapped stream
watcher the watcher for events, or null for auto-close behavior without notification

Public Methods

public void abortConnection ()

Added in API level 1

Aborts this stream. This is a special version of close() which prevents re-use of the underlying connection, if any. Calling this method indicates that there should be no attempt to read until the end of the stream.

Throws
IOException

public int available ()

Added in API level 1

Returns an estimated number of bytes that can be read or skipped without blocking for more input.

Note that this method provides such a weak guarantee that it is not very useful in practice.

Firstly, the guarantee is "without blocking for more input" rather than "without blocking": a read may still block waiting for I/O to complete — the guarantee is merely that it won't have to wait indefinitely for data to be written. The result of this method should not be used as a license to do I/O on a thread that shouldn't be blocked.

Secondly, the result is a conservative estimate and may be significantly smaller than the actual number of bytes available. In particular, an implementation that always returns 0 would be correct. In general, callers should only use this method if they'd be satisfied with treating the result as a boolean yes or no answer to the question "is there definitely data ready?".

Thirdly, the fact that a given number of bytes is "available" does not guarantee that a read or skip will actually read or skip that many bytes: they may read or skip fewer.

It is particularly important to realize that you must not use this method to size a container and assume that you can read the entirety of the stream without needing to resize the container. Such callers should probably write everything they read to a ByteArrayOutputStream and convert that to a byte array. Alternatively, if you're reading from a file, length() returns the current length of the file (though assuming the file's length can't change may be incorrect, reading a file is inherently racy).

The default implementation of this method in InputStream always returns 0. Subclasses should override this method if they are able to indicate the number of bytes available.

Returns
  • the estimated number of bytes available
Throws
IOException

public void close ()

Added in API level 1

Closes this stream. Concrete implementations of this class should free any resources during close. This implementation does nothing.

Throws
IOException

public int read (byte[] b)

Added in API level 1

Equivalent to read(buffer, 0, buffer.length).

Throws
IOException

public int read ()

Added in API level 1

Reads a single byte from this stream and returns it as an integer in the range from 0 to 255. Returns -1 if the end of the stream has been reached. Blocks until one byte has been read, the end of the source stream is detected or an exception is thrown.

Throws
IOException

public int read (byte[] b, int off, int len)

Added in API level 1

Reads up to byteCount bytes from this stream and stores them in the byte array buffer starting at byteOffset. Returns the number of bytes actually read or -1 if the end of the stream has been reached.

Throws
IOException

public void releaseConnection ()

Added in API level 1

Same as close().

Throws
IOException

Protected Methods

protected void checkAbort ()

Added in API level 1

Detects stream abort and notifies the watcher. There's not much to detect since this is called by abortConnection. The watcher will only be notified if this stream is aborted for the first time and before EOF has been detected or the stream has been closed gracefully. This stream will be detached from the underlying stream to prevent multiple notifications to the watcher.

Throws
IOException in case of an IO problem on closing the underlying stream

protected void checkClose ()

Added in API level 1

Detects stream close and notifies the watcher. There's not much to detect since this is called by close. The watcher will only be notified if this stream is closed for the first time and before EOF has been detected. This stream will be detached from the underlying stream to prevent multiple notifications to the watcher.

Throws
IOException in case of an IO problem on closing the underlying stream

protected void checkEOF (int eof)

Added in API level 1

Detects EOF and notifies the watcher. This method should only be called while the underlying stream is still accessible. Use isReadAllowed to check that condition.
If EOF is detected, the watcher will be notified and this stream is detached from the underlying stream. This prevents multiple notifications from this stream.

Parameters
eof the result of the calling read operation. A negative value indicates that EOF is reached.
Throws
IOException in case of an IO problem on closing the underlying stream

protected boolean isReadAllowed ()

Added in API level 1

Checks whether the underlying stream can be read from.

Returns
  • true if the underlying stream is accessible, false if this stream is in EOF mode and detached from the underlying stream
Throws
IOException if this stream is already closed
