Why doesn't serialization save the value of static variables?

Tim Rohaly

Variables declared as static members are not considered part of the state of an object because they are shared by all instances of that class. Classes which need to preserve the value of static members during serialization should save and restore these values explicitly using private void readObject(ObjectInputStream) and private void writeObject(ObjectOutputStream).
