Do I need to do class versioning with serialver for the Serialization of Objects or can I let the system do automatic class versioning.
Kind regards and happy new year to u all.

It's not in the requirements, so I wouldn't do it.
Just my $0.02, but I am not certified yet, so take it with a grain of salt.

You can usefully delay versioning until after the first release of an application so that makes it out of scope for the assignment.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
