How would this provide more information than monitoring
setToObjectGroup() execution? Where is writeProperty used outside of
the setters?
Still, I tried it and it isn't called. I just still receive null
values. And it very amusing: I set the wanted object group in a
dropdown, start the search for all object of the group and get the
objects, but they can't reach back to the group (which they try to do
when they display information about themselves).
I overrid it like so (my break point on the "if" statement never
caught anything):

    public void writeProperty(String propName, Object val) {
        super.writeProperty(propName, val);
        if (val == null)  {

Funny you should mention that: this is the first project I'm using
serialization and plan to use it much more. To that end, I extended
DataObject with a custom readResolve method:

    protected Object readResolve() throws ObjectStreamException {
     DataContext dc = Util.getDataContext();
     return dc == null ? this : dc.localObject(getObjectId(), this);

Still, judging from the wheres and hows I got null values, this does
not seem to be the problem.

I appreciate the help.
