Here is an example:

Java does not currently support pasting objects like images from external applications. You could copy an ImageIcon and treat it as a javaSerializedObjectMimeType. However, it would then only be pasteable into another Java program, or a program that understands Java's serialization mechanism, which will be described in the "Object Persistence and Serialization" section of Chapter 19.
