I think that I have marked the correct answer - static variables are not serializable.

Yep another, thanks again.
Anyway the exception is thrown because Tree is not serializable. Not because of the static usage.

Sorry my mistake. I forgot the important point that declaring is a way of telling the JVM that the objects of this class is serializable.But then I had selected Compilation fails as basically we don't select static instances for for writng to the file that is. I don't know even i got it wrong

OK, so the question is correct. My mistake, sorry.
But on the other hand: why we can use "static transient" combination? Static variables are not serializable.

This question is initially designed for the serialization of Forest instance, and it has been changed with the new release. That's the problem with this question
For this question, if the Tree is-a Serializable, you can serialize it even the variable 'tree' is static.
Static variables are implicitly transient - that's true, but it will not apply here, because we are serializing the object of the tree variable directly.

I guess the answer is right. This example below gives a runtime exception which is same as the question




well instance serializes if the class was serializable.... Then when it is deserialized what will be the value?

Yeah, the question is good. Only a small mistake in explanation of this question.

Yes, the answer is 'right'.
But the problem is with the given explanation, I have to change it.

Simply, Tree is-not Serializable

I have completed the Final Exam - I think that's the hardest one from between other Devaka's exams.
I have scored 72%.

I have been preparing for about one month and a half. I've known Java for about a year (no commercial projects) - I am a student.

Yeah well i am a student too..... I used to work using c and C++ and for web dev php and mysql. Got back to java after a year now. Well but java is really better once you know the things. Specially i like java for their thread usage in multicore technologies.
