ObjectInputStream Constructor

How do I use the socket.getInputStream() with the ObjectInputStream? Because the arguement type of the ObjectInputStream constructor is FileInputStream. I like to do something like: remoteIn = new ObjectInputStream(socket.getInputStream()); What should I do, please?

The ObjectInputStream constructor actually takes an InputStream as an argument, so your example of

	remoteIn = new ObjectInputStream(socket.getInputStream());
will work just fine. You may have gotten confused by looking at the example in the API documentation which uses a FileInputStream. When in doubt, first look at the documentation for the specific method or construtor, then write a test program, and finally, if still uncertain, look at the source code.
