Why do we need to serialize the objects (POJO's) that correspond to the tables in database ?? We need to serialize the session beans because of they should be able to handle remote accesses, or either because, they are activated and passivated, but in case of model objects in Hibernate why is serializability a requirement ?? is it only because it is a bean and should satisfy beans properties ??
I feel like this is the dumbest question :o)
