Hi,

Here is the answer,

There are three exceptions in which serialization doesn?t necessarily read and write to the stream. These are

  1. Serialization ignores static fields, because they are not part of any particular state.
  2. Base class fields are only handled if the base class itself is serializable.
  3. Transient fields.
