Java Serialization Articles

Some articles I found useful when studying Java Serialization.

Serialization is the process of "dehydrating" an object's state (fields of data) and its meta-data (its Class, super-classes, number and data type of its fields, and so on). This information is written into a file or other stream of octets. The format of those octets is a part of the Java standard, the same across various host platforms. Later, a serialized Java object may be "rehydrated" into an instance in memory in the same Java Virtual Machine or any other JVM.
