The GROUP BY clause defines the grouping expressions over which the results will be aggregated.
A grouping expression must either be a single-valued path expression (state field or
single-valued association field) or an identification variable. If an identification variable is
used, the entity must not have any serialized state or large object fields.
I do not quite get what "serialized state" implies in this context ??
Does it mean that an entity cannot contain properties that implement the Serializable interface ??
