Just make the class implement the interface Serializable:

Note that the interface doesn't have any methods, so you don't need to implement any methods.

Note: If you cannot modify the class, then it's not going to be possible. You can't make any object serializable.

More a beginner's question.

In theory it is easy; you just add "implements Serializable" after the class name. Serializable is a tagging interface (also called a marker interface) which has no methods.

In practice you need to ensure that all its fields are instances of Serializable classes too.
