When I try to write object and some of parent objects are not serializable, then the operation fails. In my case I do not care about restoring object which are not serializable, however I do not have much control to make them transient. Does somebody has an example of serialization object with ignoring not serializable parts? Generally I need that for a map, so if some entries can't be stored, I want just exclude them.

D,
As far as I know, you can only make class members transient -- you cannot make super classes transient. Perhaps you should change the design of your class such that it uses composition and not inheritance?

Good Luck,
Avi.
