The specs say that every member variable of a bean is considered to be a part of bean's conversational state and will be serialized (or equivalent) during passivation. Limiting the member types to non-transient primitive and Object type.
My question is though EnterpriseBean implements Serializable doesnt it require each of its Object type member variable to in-turn implement Serializable?
