Serialization

My assignment states:

"In non-networked mode, must not involve the serialization of any objects when communicating between the GUI and database elements."

I have a Data Transfer Object (Value Object) that implements the Serializable interface. Does the above statement mean that in non-networked mode my value object should not implement Serializable.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm doing the same thing with a DTO... I feel pretty confident that it's ok.

Serializable is a marker interface, so it only implies that it CAN be serialized, not that it actually is.

It means that your value abject must not go through the process of serialization. You should not use loop back network.
