I need to know how can one Serialize the Connection.
Connection is not implementing Serializable.
What should I do in order to achieve
in.readObject() and
out.writeObject(connection) for a Connection.
Thanks & Regards.

Why should you serialize the connection itself? A connection is bound to the database, it is not just a Java object.
A better way is to serialize the primary key of the record you're interested in (or maybe a Vector containing the entire resultset).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
