As of the fact that in the codebase of my company there are several locations where we copy from/to IO stream over and over again using either external libraries or do it by ourselves, I suggested to have some support for easy coping data between Input-/OutputStream or Reader/Writer without having to use to external libraries.
Long overdue. I remember we prototyped methods like this (and much more)
during JDK 7 but didn't do enough at the time to actually get them in.
We did include a bunch of easy to use methods in the Files class at the
time, including copy between input/output streams and files, but we
didn't introduce an IOUtils or such class in java.io.
