public interface ObjectStreamContext
ObjectInputStreaminstance that implements this interface.
The class of an object that is being serialized or deserialized can test (in its private
method) if the object stream being used implements this interface. If the stream does implement
this interface, the class can then retrieve context information relevant to the overall
serialization or deserialization operation by invoking the
getObjectStreamContext method and inspecting the elements of the returned collection.
The contents of the collection are determined by the implementation of the object stream. The
context information available from a given element of the collection is determined by that
Examples of types that a context object might implement include
The context information available from a given element of the collection is determined by that element's type. The order of the elements is insignificant. The collection may be empty.
The caller of this method cannot assume that the returned collection is modifiable.
