    Default Sharing my ByteStream, feel free to improve!

    Hi guys,

    I wrote this a few days ago for my MMORPG.
    You can read and write Strings, etc in a Input- or OutputStream with bytes.
    package com.verficon.io;
    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.io.InputStream;
    import java.io.OutputStream;
    public class ByteStream {
    	private byte[] buffer;
    	private int pos;
    	public static ByteStream create() {
    		final ByteStream s = new ByteStream();
    		s.buffer = new byte[1024];
    		return s;
    	public boolean readBuffer(final InputStream is) throws IOException {
    		return is.read(buffer) != -1;
    	public byte readByte() {
    		return buffer[pos++];
    	public void writeByte(final byte b) {
    		buffer[pos++] = b;
    	private void checkBuffer() {
    		if (pos >= buffer.length)
    			pos = 0;
    	public String readString() {
    		final byte length = readByte();
    		final byte[] b = new byte[length];
    		for (int i = 0; i < length; i++) {
    			b[i] = readByte();
    		return new String(b);
    	public void writeString(final String s) {
    		final byte[] b = s.getBytes();
    		writeByte((byte) b.length);
    		for (int i = 0; i < b.length; i++) {
    	public void flushBuffer(final OutputStream os) throws IOException {
    		buffer = new byte[1024];
    Have fun, feel free to add something!
