When I tried to debugg the code,I found out its basically trying to get some data from a .mpf file. Can someone please me a precise reason why is this happening and an appropriate solution too.

Did you create this file with an ObjectOutputStream? If the answer is no then you should not use ObjectInputStream to read it. It requires some header data which is written by ObjectOutputStream but apparently is missing in your file.
