Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.io.ObjectInputStream.resolveClass() method

protected Class<?> resolveClass(ObjectStreamClass desc)

Parameters

  • desc -- an instance of class ObjectStreamClass

Return Value

This method returns a Class object corresponding to desc

Exception

  • IOException -- any of the usual Input/Output exceptions.

  • ClassNotFoundException -- if class of a serialized object cannot be found.

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.io.ObjectInputStream.resolveClass() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

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.writeUTF(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.readUTF());

         // get the class for string and print the name
         ObjectStreamClass streamClass = ObjectStreamClass.lookup(Integer.class);
         System.out.println("" + ois.resolveClass(streamClass).getName());


      } catch (Exception ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
      }

   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Hello World
java.lang.Integer
