Objects in Session

When an object is stored in a session and later we change that object, does that change reflect in the stored object. For example:

My impression is that objInst gets serialized and stored in the session, so any changes that are made later will not be in the objInst. The above code will just print 99. Please correct me if this is wrong.

What happened when you tried it?

In other words -- you've already written the code, you can answer this question easily for yourself. Why post here until you've tried it for yourself?
