Please select when will you use the Externalizable interface?CorrectIncorrect
5. Question10 points
Which of the following correctly defines the behaviour of a transient variable?CorrectIncorrect
6. Question10 points
What will be the value of a transient variable after deserialization?CorrectIncorrect
7. Question10 points
Do you need to implement any method of Serializable interface to make an object serializable?CorrectIncorrect
8. Question10 points
What happens if an object is serializable but it includes a reference to a non-serializable object?CorrectIncorrect
9. Question10 points
Which of the following is the correct behaviour for static variables during serialization?CorrectIncorrect
10. Question10 points
What would happen with the superclass instance variables of a class if the class is serializable but its superclass is not?CorrectIncorrect
11. Question10 points
Which of the following do you think is the purpose of the writeObject() and readObject() methods in Serialization process?CorrectIncorrect
12. Question10 points
What are the different approaches for making an object Serializable other than Serializable interface?CorrectIncorrect
13. Question10 points
What would happen if you try to alter any class variable without specifying the serialVersionUID ?CorrectIncorrect
14. Question10 points
Which of the following is not the correct method to generate a SerialVersionUID ?CorrectIncorrect
15. Question10 points
Which of the following is not a valid reason for static member variables being out of the java serialization process?CorrectIncorrect
16. Question10 points

17. Question10 points
How can a subclass prevent from Serialization if its superClass supports Serialization?CorrectIncorrect
18. Question10 points
Please select when to add readObjectNoData() during serialization?CorrectIncorrect
Note: When a class has instance fields which are serializable and extendable, there is a caution you should be aware of. If the class has invariants that would be violated if its instance fields were initialized to their default values (zero for integral types, false for boolean, and null for object reference types)
19. Question10 points
What would happen if one of the class members doesn’t implement Serializable interface?CorrectIncorrect
20. Question10 points
What is the need of the Serialization Proxy Pattern?CorrectIncorrect
