Is serialziation needed frequently in real world projects ? If so, then what are the applications of serialization ?

Thanks for the reply SV. Can you give me some more examples. The scjp doesnt have serialization, so i guess it can be considered as a disadvantage.

PS : i noticed that the colour of your belt has changed.

I suspect that the reason serialization was taken off the SCJP exam was not that it's not used, but that it's becoming less common that you have to do it yourself. Technologies like RMI and EJB use serialization, but it's behind the scenes and they take care of a lot of the details for you.
