In this series of video tutorials, you will learn about file and stream handling in Java with a strong conceptual foundation, before moving onto practical scenarios. Begin by learning how to navigate Java's complicated hierarchy of classes for dealing with byte and character streams. You will then learn how to apply the skip and available methods of FileInputStream objects and identify when the end of a byte stream has been reached. You will be able to write a byte stream by using the OutputStream and FileOutputStream classes, and then examine how to copy any file as a byte sequence using the FileInputStream and FileOutputSream classes. Move on to learning how to read a character stream using the FileReader and FileWriter classes. You will then copy a character file as a sequence of characters using the FileReader and FileWriter classes. At the end of the course, participants will be able to summarize the key concepts covered.
