Potential for IndexOutOfBoundException

I am currently looking into the potential for an IndexOutOfBoundException. I am examing the code below because it reoccurs pretty frequently.

				byte[] arr = new byte[2048];
				int length = 0;
				while ((length = pdfInputStream.read(arr)) > 0) {
					response.getOutputStream().write(arr, 0, length);  //

Open in new window

Does code like this have the potential to throw an IndexOutOfBoundsException?  My thought is yes because the Arrays are not synchronized. I would prefer some verification.
