Re: Why & When should I Serialize?

you need to serialize whenever an object is sent over the network. that is pretty much the best rule that I can give you. if you are using RMI or RMI over IIOP (for EJBs), you need to serialize anything that is being exchanged between the client and the server. why? because otherwise you will get an exception.
