Using TimerHandle interface

I'm confused about javax.ejb.TimeHandler interface

I understood how to use TimeHandler, but I don't know why should we use this interface. It just appears as a wrapper for Timer instances.

Can anyone explain this?

It's designed for serializing timer objects. Note: TimerHandle extends while Timer does not.

Can some one sight a practical scenario where the TimerHandle could be used ?
