Serilizable is the marker interface , Used to marshal and unmarshal the objects , when we are passing it through the network,
With this interface , we cannot store the object.....

Its about turning the object into a serial representation. Once you have this serial representation you can send it through serial connections like streams. streams can go across sockets or to files.

marshalling is a bit more complicated.
