hi Can anyone clear my doubt that is... How an object which is implementing "Serializable" interface is eligible for serialization without inhereting any properties from Serializable interface since Serializable interface do not defined any methods(behaviour). thanks inadvance ---shivaram
It is just a tag that is used internally - somewhere in the serialization code there is code like: if( obj instanceof Serializable ) .... Java has several of these interfaces used only for tags. Cloneable is another one. Bill
