If member of class does not implement Serializable interface - than NotSerializableException is thrown in java.

If any of the member does not implement Serializable than  NotSerializableException is thrown.

We will use MyClass as a member variable of Serializable class.

If we note output, myClass didn’t implemented Serializable interface that’s why Serialization process has thrown NotSerializableException.

How to avoid NotSerializableException?
We got to ensure that during Serialization all the members of class implements Serializable.
