Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-463) Does it make sense for NET classes to be Serializable?
Date Sat, 05 May 2012 17:11:51 GMT


Sebb commented on NET-463:

Actually CopyOnWriteArrayList is Serializable, but the entries are of type EventListener,
which may not be.

> A few of the NET classes currently implement Serializable.
> However, it's doubtful that serialization would actually work.
> There are no unit tests.
> Also, what is the use-case for it?
> Can we drop the Serializable references?
> The classes that implement Serializable currently are:
> ftp.FTPFile
> ntp.TimeStamp
> util.ListenerList (contains non-serialisable field of type CopyOnWriteArrayList)
> ProtocolCommandSupport
