Synopsis

Class Name:

java.io.InvalidClassException

Superclass:

java.io.ObjectStreamException

Immediate Subclasses:

None

New as of JDK 1.1

Description

An InvalidClassException is thrown during object serialization. It indicates that the run-time environment does not support a serialized class for one of the following reasons:

  • The version of the class does not match the serial version of the class in the stream.

  • The class contains unknown data types.

An InvalidClassException can also indicate one of these problems with the class itself:

  • The class implements only one of writeObject() and readObject().

  • The class is not public.

  • The class does not have an accessible constructor that takes no arguments.
