  • Last Updated : 12 Jun, 2019

The getVersion() method of java.security.Provider class is used to return the version number for this provider

Syntax:

public double getVersion()

Return Value: This method returns the version number for this provider.

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

Example 1:






// Java program to demonstrate
// getVersion() method
  
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception
    {
  
        try {
            // creating the object of  SecureRandom
            SecureRandom sr = SecureRandom.getInstance("SHA1PRNG");
  
            // getting the Provider of the SecureRandom sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = sr.getProvider();
  
            // getting the version of the provider using getVersion() method
            double version = provider.getVersion();
  
            // printing the string info
            System.out.println("version : " + version);
        }
  
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
version : 1.8

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getVersion() method
  
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception
    {
  
        try {
            // creating the object of  KeyPairGenerator
            KeyPairGenerator sr = KeyPairGenerator.getInstance("DSA", "SUN");
  
            // getting the Provider of the KeyPairGenerator sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = sr.getProvider();
  
            // getting the version of the provider using getVersion() method
            double version = provider.getVersion();
  
            // printing the string info
            System.out.println("version : " + version);
        }
  
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
