Preferences can be exported using the methods Preferences.exportNode() and Preferences.exportSubtree(). This exported data can be imported by using the method Preferences.importPreferences(). The preference in the exported data contains the path of the node that held the preference. When the exported preference is imported, it is added to the node with the same path. You can see in the given example that we have create an file input stream and by using the method importPreferences(is), we can import all of the preferences represented by the XML document on the specified input stream. To display the imported data on the console, we have used the method exportSubtree(System.out).
Here is the code of JavaTypes.xml

<!DOCTYPE preferences SYSTEM "http://java.sun.com/dtd/preferences.dtd">

<entry key="Integer" value="123"/>
<entry key="Long" value="123"/>
<entry key="Float" value="12.3"/>
<entry key="Double" value="12.3"/>
