Hi,

Can any one be so kind to help me knowing " what happens when a serializable object in java contains other non serializable objects " during serialization.

Also, there are some objects in java API that cannot be serialized like ResourceBundle, servletContext, java.util. Enumeration. If such objects exist in a serilizable user defined class, how can we make this compeltely serializable and how can we serialize the non serializable java API objects.

Many thanks.

Warm Regards,
Prasanna Lakshmi Tallapaka

Why don't you try it for yourself? You'll learn more than if someone answers your question.

You can mark them as transient. This is a nice article about serialization. Remember that serialization is no longer on the exam.
