4.has a constructor which takes a StingBuffer Object as an Argument
ans:1.2.3.4.
In the jdk-doc ,it deosn't specify the feature if a class/interface is subclass of the serializable interface,such as the class String.How can I judge wheathe a class is serializable??

Hi, James:
A class mark itself as Serializable by either implementing Serializable or Externalizable. The former one is just a mark interface with no method defined. The latter is the sub-interface of the former one.
Hope it helps,

As is well know that Vector is serializable ,but when i look up the jdk-doc ,I can't find the key-word such as "implements serializable "or"implements exserializable ".

Can you give me a explaination about it ,thank you very much ,I am beginner!!

How come? JDC in my side says
public class Vector
extends AbstractList
implements List, Cloneable, Serializable.
Check it again!
