import java.io.*;

public class ObjectInputStreamDemo extends ObjectInputStream{

   public ObjectInputStreamDemo(InputStream in) throws IOException {
      super(in);
    }
    
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String s = "Hello World";
      
      try {

         // create a new file with an ObjectOutputStream
         FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("test.txt");
         ObjectOutputStream oout = new ObjectOutputStream(out);

         // write something in the file
         oout.writeObject(s);
         oout.flush();

         // create an ObjectInputStream for the file we created before
         ObjectInputStreamDemo ois = new ObjectInputStreamDemo(new FileInputStream("test.txt"));

         // read and print an object and cast it as string
         System.out.println("" + (String)ois.readObjectOverride());

      } catch (Exception ex) {
