What do you mean by Serialization in Java ?
What is the effect of Serializable when implemented in classes ?
Thanks

Serialization is how you can convert an object into a byte stream, and later deserialze it back into the original object.
Can be useful if you want to write an object to a file, or pass it across the network; or to any type of stream available!
If a class implements the serializable interface then it can be serialized.

You may want to take a look at The Object Serialization Lesson of Sun's Java Tutorial.
