ObjectInputStream Class registerValidation() method

  • registerValidation() method is available in package.
  • registerValidation() method is used to register an object (ob) to be validated before the graph is returned.
  • registerValidation() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • registerValidation() method may throw an exception at the time of registering an object to validate.
    • NotActiveException: This exception may throw when the given parameters are not allowed to enable.
    • InvalidObjectException: This exception may throw when the given parameter is not valid.


    public void registerValidation(ObjectInputValiadation ob, int priority);


  • ObjectInputValiadation ob – represents the object to get the validation callback.
  • int priority – represents the priority by which based on ordering of callback.

Return value:

The return type of the method is void, it returns nothing.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void registerValidation(ObjectInputValiadation ob, 
// int priority) method of ObjectInputStream


public class RegisterValidation {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  try {
   // Instantiates ObjectOutputStream , ObjectInputStream 
   // FileInputStream and FileOutputStream
   FileOutputStream file_out_stm = new FileOutputStream("D:\\includehelp.txt");
   Drain obj_out_stm = new Drain(file_out_stm);
   FileInputStream file_in_stm = new FileInputStream("D:\\includehelp.txt");
   ObjectInputStream obj_in_stm = new ObjectInputStream(file_in_stm);

   obj_out_stm.writeObject(new ReadObject());

   // By using readObject() method is to read
   ReadObject a = (ReadObject) obj_in_stm.readObject();

   // Testing Validations
   if (ReadObject.str.equals("Java Programmer")) {
    System.out.println("Validations Successful!!!");
   } else {
    System.out.println("Invalid Validations!!! ");
  } catch (Exception ex) {

 static class ReadObject implements Serializable, ObjectInputValidation {
  static String str = "Java World!!!";
  private String readObject(ObjectInputStream ois)
  throws IOException, ClassNotFoundException {
   // By using readFields() method is to get fields 
   ObjectInputStream.GetField get_f = ois.readFields();

   ois.registerValidation(this, 0);

   // Return str
   return (String) get_f.get("str", null);

  public void validateObject() throws InvalidObjectException {
   throw new UnsupportedOperationException("Unsupported Validations!!!");


Invalid Validations!!!
