DataOutputStream is a bad choice for writing a binary file:
A data output stream lets an application write primitive Java data types to an output stream in a portable way. An application can then use a data input stream to read the data back in.

DataOutputStream

The cool thing about Java IO is that copying to a socket is the same as copying to a file or a pipe and so on. Have a look at this example.
