This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Do not store large object graphs inside an HttpSession: If you store the data in the HttpSession as one large object graph, the application server will have to process the entire HttpSession object each time. This forces Java serialization and adds computational overhead. The throughput decreases as the size of the objects stored in the HttpSession increases because of the serialization cost.
I just want to know how Java serialization and adds computational overhead happens? what is serialization cost.
