It is used to transfer objects across the wire and to save the satte of the object on the disk.

And your EntityBean might be deployed remotely ... You need to pass the Primary Key for a finder , The bean passes the PK object back in the ejbCreate ... this is done across the wire .. so the PK should implement Serializable ....

Anything that goes across a network should be serialize-able:

During pooling of bean instances, if the maximum pool size is exceeded, then the container saves some of the beans onto the disk to allow for new instances. Now when a bean which has been saved onto the disk is called for, the container reconstructs the bean from the secondary storage. To do this it might also need to persist an existing bean which is not being used.
The persistance of beans requires all bean and bean related objects to implement serializable.

so the 2 reasons for serizable: remote deployment, & persist the  bean to secondary storage.
