ObjectOutputStream Class useProtocolVersion() method

  • useProtocolVersion() method is available in java.io package.
  • useProtocolVersion() method is used to represent the given stream protocol version to use if writing the stream.
  • useProtocolVersion() 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.
  • useProtocolVersion() method may throw an exception at the time of using the protocol version.
    • IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while writing to the output stream.
    • IllegalStateException: This exception may throw when this method is invoked after serializing any object.
    • IllegalArgumentException: This exception may throw when the given parameter is not valid.


    public void useProtocolVersion(int ver);


  • int ver – represents the protocol version to use from ObjectStreamConstants of java.io.

Return value:

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


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void useProtocolVersion(int ver) method of //ObjectOutputStream

import java.io.*;

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

  // By using useProtocolVersion() method is to specify
  // protocol version for the stream to use

  // By using writeByte() method is to
  // write byte to the stream		
  obj_out_stm.writeObject("Java Programming!!!");

  // By using readByte() method is to 
  // read the byte and convert it into
  // char
  String ch = (String) obj_in_stm.readObject();
  System.out.println("ch: " + ch + " ");

  // By using close() method is to 
  // close all the streams 
  System.out.println("Stream Shutdown... ");



ch: Java Programming!!! 
Stream Shutdown...
