No it cannot. It's a unique class that stands on its own.
However, it does implement DataOutput and DataInput, the same interfaces implemented by DataOutputStream and DataInputStream. This lets you treat data-writing and reading methods in a consistent way accross various class types, giving you some flexibility in how you use it.
