What is Serialization in java?


Let’s start serialization tutorial by understanding what is Serialization. Serialization is process of converting object into byte stream.

Serialized object (byte stream) can be:
>Transferred over network.
>Persisted/saved into file.
>Persisted/saved into database.

Once, object have have been transferred over network or persisted in file or in database, we could deserialize the object and retain its state as it is in which it was serialized.
