Sanjay,
Marshaling is the general name for the process of organizing objects for transport and converting them to an appropriate form for whatever transport protocol is in use. Distributed object systems always use some form of marshaling to pass objects between different address spaces. RMI, CORBA, and DCOM all use marshaling.
Serialization is a general Java technology for placing objects on streams; it has uses far beyond RMI. RMI uses serialization to marshal objects for transport.

I know this is more than a decade the thread started but i have a doubt regarding this.

You said
.. and converting them to an appropriate form ..


Can we say this appropriate format is packets of 1s and 0s?

If not, what?

Thanks in advance
