How to get out the byte[] in a ByteArrayDataSource ?

My code looks as follow:

...
com.sun.istack.ByteArrayDataSource byteArrayDataSource = (com.sun.istack.ByteArrayDataSource) erstelleAntragResponse.getPdfDokument().getPdfData().getDataSource();
...

By debugging the byteArrayDataSource looks as follow:

"byteArrayDataSource" = ByteArrayDataSource
  buf=byte[64727]
    [0...99999]
      [0...99]
        [0]=37
        [0]=80
        [0]=68
        [0]=70
        [0]=45
        [0]=49
        [0]=46
...

My question:
1.
How can I get the 'buf'?

2.
The values of "37, 80, 68, 70, 45, 49, 46..." means "%PDF....".

How can I convert it from number to ASCII?

Try calling getInputStream on it and writing into a ByeArrayOutputStream (you can find 'IOUtils' at http://www.technojeeves.com/joomla/index.php/free/51-copying-streams ) :
ByteArrayOutputStream out = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
IOUtils.copyStream(dataSource.getInputStream(), out);
byte[] content = out.toByteArray();
