javax.sql.rowset.serial
Class SerialJavaObject

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.sql.rowset.serial.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.
