Encrypt large SealedObject

Hello,

I'm trying to create a SealedObject that contains a Serializable object and a cipher that initialise with RSA. I want to create a pair of keys for each user, so that's why I'm using RSA. I'm getting an Exception when trying to encrypt this object and I know that the reason is because key's size. My question is how I can create a SealedObject that will contains an Object[] (with two integers and a SecretKey) and encrypt it using user's public key?

Thanks in advance,

Too difficult a question for “beginning”. Moving to security forum.

Can you post the code that you've tried. I'd like to see how you create the cipher you use for encrypting the sealedObject
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
