SecurityManager Class checkWrite() method

  • checkWrite() method is available in java.lang package.
  • checkWrite(FileDescriptor file_des) method invokes checkPermission with the RuntimePermission("writeFileDescriptor") to write the given file descriptor.
  • checkWrite(String fi) method invokes checkPermission with the FilePermission(fi,"write") to write to the file by the given fi parameter.
  • checkWrite(FileDescriptor file_des), checkWrite(String fi) methods may throw an exception at the time of writing the file from different media.
  • checkWrite(FileDescriptor file_des):
    • SecurityException – This exception may throw when the calling thread is not allowed to write the given file descriptor.
    • NullPointerException – This exception may throw when the given parameter is null.
  • checkWrite(String fi):
    • SecurityException – This exception may throw when the calling thread is not allowed to write the given file.

  • These are non-static methods, it is accessible with the class object only and, if we try to access these methods with the class name then we will get an error.

Parameter(s):

  • In the first case, FileDescriptor file_des - This parameter represents the system-specific file descriptor.
  • In the second case, String fi - This parameter represents the system-specific file name.

Return value:

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

Example:

// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of checkWrite() method of SecurityManager class

import java.security.*;
import java.io.*;

public class CheckWrite extends SecurityManager {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        FileDescriptor file_desc = new FileDescriptor();
        String fi = "getProperties().doc";

        // By using setProperty() method is to set the policy property 
        // with security manager
        System.setProperty("java.security.policy", "file:/C:/java.policy");

        // Instantiating a CheckWrite object
        CheckWrite cw = new CheckWrite();

        // By using setSecurityManager() method is to set the
        // security manager
        System.setSecurityManager(cw);

        // By using CheckWrite(FileDescriptor) method is to
        // check that write file by using file descriptor
        cw.checkWrite(file_desc);

        // By using CheckWrite(String) method is to
        // check that write file by using String 
        cw.checkWrite(fi);

        // Display the message 
        System.out.println("Accepted..");
    }
}
