  • Last Updated : 17 Sep, 2019

The getProvider() method of java.security.Provider.Service class is used to return the provider of this provider service object.

Syntax:

public final Provider getProvider()

Return Value: This method returns the provider of this provider service object.

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

Example 1:






// Java program to demonstrate
// getProvider() method
  
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // creating the object of Signature
            Signature sr
                = Signature.getInstance(
                    "SHA1withDSA", "SUN");
  
            // getting the Provider of the Signature sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = sr.getProvider();
  
            // getting the service of the provider
            // using getServices() method
            Provider.Service service
                = provider
                      .getService("Signature",
                                  sr.getAlgorithm());
  
            // getting Provider of Provider.Service object
            // by using getProvider() method
            Provider name = service.getProvider();
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("Provider : " + name);
        }
  
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
        catch (NoSuchProviderException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Provider : SUN version 1.8

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getProvider() method
  
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // creating object of MessageDigest
            MessageDigest msd
                = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
  
            // getting the Provider of the Signature sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = msd.getProvider();
  
            // getting the service of the provider
            // using getServices() method
            Provider.Service service
                = provider
                      .getService("MessageDigest",
                                  msd.getAlgorithm());
  
            // getting Provider of Provider.Service object
            // by using getProvider() method
            Provider name = service.getProvider();
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("Provider : " + name);
        }
  
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Provider : SUN version 1.8
