AlgorithmParameterGenerator getProvider() method in Java with Examples

The getProvider() method of java.security.AlgorithmParameterGenerator class is used to return the provider of this algorithm parameter generator object.

Syntax:

public final Provider getProvider()

Return Value: This method returns the provider of this algorithm parameter generator object.

Below are the examples to illustrate the getProvider() method:

        }
        catch (ProviderException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
