Below programs demonstrate the getProtectionDomain() method.

Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getProtectionDomain() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Test {
  
    public Object obj;
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws ClassNotFoundException
    {
  
        try {
  
            // returns the Class object for this class
            Class myClass = Class.forName("Test");
  
            System.out.println("Class represented by myClass: "
                               + myClass.toString());
  
            // Get the ProtectionDomain of myClass
            // using getProtectionDomain() method
            System.out.println("ProtectionDomain of myClass: "
                               + myClass.getProtectionDomain());
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Class represented by myClass: class Test
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "getProtectionDomain")

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getProtectionDomain() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
class Main {
  
    private Object obj;
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws ClassNotFoundException, NoSuchFieldException
    {
  
        try {
            // returns the Class object for this class
            Class myClass = Class.forName("Main");
  
            System.out.println("Class represented by myClass: "
                               + myClass.toString());
  
            String ProtectionDomainName = "obj";
  
            // Get the ProtectionDomain of myClass
            // using getProtectionDomain() method
            System.out.println("ProtectionDomain of myClass: "
                               + myClass.getProtectionDomain());
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Class represented by myClass: class Main
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "getProtectionDomain")
