    Default Deserializing objects

    I have a problem about an objects deserialization: I serialized some objects different from one another but extend a X class. These objects are serialized in a random way and i don't know the correct order when they're about to be deserialized and I can't find a way to make a specific casting to their specific class. I thought to rescue each object and custing it to the X class, but then how do i make a down-casting? Using the reflection could be the solution?

    For debugging you could use the getClass() method.
    Did you try using instanceof to test the object that was read?

    I thought to use instanceof but there'd be 20 deserialized objects or more, so it wouldn't be "elegant" to make so many if-cases. Using the getClass() method how do I proceed? Class<?> c = objectDeserialized.getClass() and then c.newInstance()?

    Read the serialized object into an instance of the Object class and call getClass() on that object.
    Something like:
    Object obj = readObject()
    S.o.p(obj.getClass())

    so many if-cases.
    You will need code to handle each type of object that can be read.

    Ok, but if I had to create that specific object as it was before the serialization?

    You need a definition for the class that the jvm can use to build the object from the serialized object.

    Faced with this severe disease, here are some everyday measures we should take to stay healthy. First, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
