During serialization, if I'm implementing my own writeObject & readObject methods then which method should I use to read a String.

Please view the following code:



Here I've written a String using writeChars() methods while serializaing object. But there is no similar method while reading object during de-serialization.

Can anyone help me out in same.

NOTE - I know that we can do same using defaultWriteObject()/defaultReadObject() methods. But I intentionaly want to go this way. Please provide a solution in the same context.

Hi Lalit,

Even I checked the ObjectInputStream API and could not find any related method for reading a String. But can't we use public final Object readObject() method, as String extends Object. I haven't tried this, but just a thought.

Hi Chandra,

It works with writeObject() and readObject() methods.

Thanks.
