Class SerialJavaObject

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable

    public class SerialJavaObject
    extends Object
    implements Serializable, Cloneable
    A serializable mapping in the Java programming language of an SQL JAVA_OBJECT value. Assuming the Java object implements the Serializable interface, this class simply wraps the serialization process.

    If however, the serialization is not possible because the Java object is not immediately serializable, this class will attempt to serialize all non-static members to permit the object state to be serialized. Static or transient fields cannot be serialized; an attempt to serialize them will result in a SerialException object being thrown.

    Thread safety

    A SerialJavaObject is not safe for use by multiple concurrent threads. If a SerialJavaObject is to be used by more than one thread then access to the SerialJavaObject should be controlled by appropriate synchronization.

        SecurityException - If a security manager, s, is present and the caller's class loader is not the same as or an ancestor of the class loader for the class of the object being serialized and invocation of s.checkPackageAccess() denies access to the package of that class.
