I was just wondering if there is any way of editing or deleting objects when they are read from a text file using the ObjectInputStream.

Once you've read the Object out of the stream, you can do whatever you want with it. Take a look at how this guy reads a Dimension object out of the stream:

At that point, he could fiddle with the Dimension object however he wanted to...it's in memory, just like all your other regular objects, so have at it!

Thanks for the advice. But can you actually overwrite that object in the file after editing.
