public interface DataContentHandler
DataContentHandlersthe framework can be extended to convert streams in to objects, and to write objects to streams.
Applications don't generally call the methods in DataContentHandlers directly. Instead, an application calls the equivalent methods in DataHandler. The DataHandler will attempt to find an appropriate DataContentHandler that corresponds to its MIME type using the current DataContentHandlerFactory. The DataHandler then calls through to the methods in the DataContentHandler.
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Return an object representing the data in its most preferred form.
Returns an object which represents the data to be transferred.
Returns an array of DataFlavor objects indicating the flavors the data can be provided in.

ds- The DataSource representing the data to be converted.
IOException- if the data can't be accessed
void writeTo(Object obj, String mimeType, OutputStream os) throws IOException
