Don't affraid of serialization, it's simple. You only have to say how to save your object in the serialize() method. Java objects already implements serializable interface.
For introduction use
Other resources could be found at google (serialization).
In newer recomendations this should be done using java.beans.XMLEncoder (see java api doc).
