 * Proxy stream that prevents the underlying output stream from being closed.

 * This class is typically used in cases where an output stream needs to be
 * passed to a component that wants to explicitly close the stream even if
 * other components would still use the stream for output.

public class CloseShieldOutputStream extends ProxyOutputStream {

     * Creates a proxy that shields the given output stream from being
     * closed.

    public CloseShieldOutputStream(OutputStream out) {

     * Replaces the underlying output stream with a {@link ClosedOutputStream}
     * sentinel. The original output stream will remain open, but this proxy
     * will appear closed.
