Any stateful object, to preserve its state need to implement serializable. Some of the application servers like for example weblogic during activities such as session replication and so forth the object would need to serialize and deserialize the objects contents to replicate its state to other servers distributed over a network. The only technique weblogic could use to recreate the object would be deserialization. In case of homes or remotes, that would be typical distributed system using stubs and skeletons. Serialization comes into play whenever there is a stateful object.
