hi

if you dont want that BigDecimal to be serialized you may mark it with "transient"

for example:
public class YourClass implements Serializable{
...
   private transient BigDecimal myDecimal;

}

but if you need to serialize that instance variable, you should put two following methods in your class definition and customize serialization:

private void writeObject(ObjectOutputStream os) {
try {
os.defaultWriteObject();
os.writeDouble(myDecimal.doubleValue());
} catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
}

private void readObject(ObjectInputStream is) {
try {
is.defaultReadObject();
myDecimal = BigDecimal.valueOf((is.readDouble()));
} catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
}
