Is it like now we have a well(file) with water(information) and then we want some water(info) in the bucket(to some user). then we use a pipe as an intermediate to extract the water from the well. Can i call this pipe the stream? kinldy let me know what exactly it is
thanks.

Hi Chandra
Not exactly but you are close. I would put the example of a pipeline in house carrying water to every necessary place in house. That pipeline is "stream" that "contains" data (water) and the data "flows" within that pipeline.
Hope this makes sense. Also, the tutorial from sun here might help more.
Regards
Maulin
