Hi...
can I serialize the object with Java Reflection?

No. And why would you want to? Isn't it better to use the serialization apis for serialization?

Now... unless you mean to use Java reflection to call the Java serialization apis, then sure. But why would you want to do that?

Technically you can, but you'll be reinventing the wheel. Don't bother, really.
