Java IO: FilterOutputStream

Last update: 2014-06-23

The FilterOutputStream is a base class for implementing your own filtering output streams. Basically it just overrides all methods in OutputStream.

Personally, I see no sensible purpose for this class. I cannot see that this class actually adds or changes any behaviour in OutputStream except that it takes an OutputStream in its constructor. If you choose to extend this class you might as well extend the OutputStream class directly, and avoid the extra class in the hierarchy.
