Class SideBandInputStream

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Closeable, AutoCloseable

    public class SideBandInputStream
    extends InputStream
    Unmultiplexes the data portion of a side-band channel.

    Reading from this input stream obtains data from channel 1, which is typically the bulk data stream.

    Channel 2 is transparently unpacked and "scraped" to update a progress monitor. The scraping is performed behind the scenes as part of any of the read methods offered by this stream.

    Channel 3 results in an exception being thrown, as the remote side has issued an unrecoverable error.
