Serializable objects are ones that you can store as byte data and load back in at any time.  The any classes, which implemnets Serializable interface, may be written using ObjectOutputStream and read using ObjectInputStream.  

Usually, You should mark your classes Serializable if you wanted to store them in a database or if you needed to send them over a network, or if you want to pass them via RMI.   The Value Objects is good example for using serializable.
