Hi...
why Java soft peoples (java creators) could not make serialization process ( by default)to all classes in Java API?

There are many classes that simply can't be serialized. For example, java.net.Socket, representing a network connection, java.io.FileInputStream, representing an open file, or in general, any class that is backed by real operating-system resources. There's no way to automatically get those resources back when deserializing, so there's no way to effectively serialize.
