AlgorithmParameters getInstance() method in Java with Examples

getInstance(String algorithm)

The getInstance() method of java.security.AlgorithmParameters class returns a object of AlgorithmParameters type that applys the assigned AlgorithmParameters algorithm.

Syntax:

public static AlgorithmParameters
  getInstance(String algorithm)
  throws NoSuchAlgorithmException

Parameters: This method seeks the standard Algorithm as a parameter.



Return Value: This method provides an new algorithm parameters object.

Exception: This method throws following exception:

  • NoSuchAlgorithmException:– if no provider is avaliable to support an algorithm parameters spi application for the particular algorithm.
  • NullPointerException:– if algorithm is null.

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

Example 1:

getInstance(String algorithm, Provider provider)

The getInstance() method of java.security.AlgorithmParameters class returns a object of AlgorithmParameters type that applys the assigned algorithmParameters algorithm and assigned provider object.

Syntax:

public static AlgorithmParameters
  getInstance(String algorithm,  Provider provider)
  throws NoSuchAlgorithmException

Parameters: This method seeks the following arguments as a parameters:


  • algorithm: which is the name of the algorithm specified.
  • provider which is the name of the provider specified

Return Value: This method provides an new algorithm parameters object.

Exception: This method throws following exceptions:

  • NoSuchAlgorithmException: if no provider is avaliable to support an algorithm parameters spi application for the particular algorithm.
  • IllegalArgumentException: if the provider is null.
  • NullPointerException: if algorithm is null
