Don't do that. Object-Streams are for exchanging Java objects -- they basically define a file format for storing in-memory data. The things you're talking about already have a file format -- they're files. Hence, just read and write them with FileInputStream/FileOutputStream.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
