I have a class in which some methods are to be serialized and I don't want to serialze some of them. So what should I do.

As far as I know TRANSIENT is for varialbles only. But I do not know, by making a methods STATIC We can stop it from being serialized.

methods are *never* serialized - the state of a object is preserved by saving the fields and their values.
