I created JSSE application that uses a serializable class named StoryNode. This ‘StoryNode’ class needs only the java.io.* import statement. The class that uses this ‘StoryNode’ class has a Vector object that holds the the ‘StoryNode’ objects. This Vector object is serialized to a file(with a .str file extension) which another Android application I wrote can read.
So I copy this file to the assets directory of my android project. I can get an Inputstream to the file from within an Activity class with the following code:
InputStream in = getAssets().open(“astorytree.str”);
But there’s a problem. In the android application when I try to deserialized the inputstream to a Vector object an exception is thrown saying: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: StoryNode
Within my android project I have already defined the StoryNode class, so I don’t understand why the StoryNode class can’t be found. Even though android uses the Dalvik virtual machine, its still the JVM that’s there(I think) so I don’t know if there is some incompatibility with a class defined using pure J2SE and the very same class defined in an android project.
Thanks in advance.
