Constructor Details


protected CertificateRep(String type,
                         byte[] data)
Create an alternative representation of this certificate. The (type, data) pair is typically the certificate's type as returned by Certificate.getType() (i.e. the canonical name of the certificate type) and the encoded form as returned by Certificate.getEncoded().

For example, X.509 certificates would create an instance of this class with the parameters "X.509" and the ASN.1 representation of the certificate, encoded as DER bytes.

type - The certificate type.
data - The encoded certificate data.

Method Details


protected Object readResolve()
            throws ObjectStreamException
Deserialize this certificate replacement into the appropriate certificate object. That is, this method attempts to create a CertificateFactory for this certificate's type, then attempts to parse the encoded data with that factory, returning the resulting certificate.
The deserialized certificate.
ObjectStreamException - If there is no appropriate certificate factory for the given type, or if the encoded form cannot be parsed. --- Certificate class Copyright (C) 1999, 2003, 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
