Can a class serialize itself provided it implements Serializable interface?
Only instance fileds are serialized. Not the static ones?

Cheers

I think it should. Why dont you write a code and try it yourself?

P.S : Serialization is not on exam.

What exactly do you mean by this?? If a class implements serializable, then instances of that class can we serialized by any class, this includes itself. If you mean anything else please clarify.

Only instance fileds are serialized. Not the static ones?


Yes...

Hey guys - I see chap 6 has Serialization topics. Is it really out of scope?
