When I added EmbeddedSimpleDataSource I intentionally did not make it 
serializable, not sure where the @serial tags came from. I saw creating 
data sources from a stored representation as more a J2EE capability 
(e.g. appservers). I thought that it was unlikely that J2ME applications 
would need to have stored data sources, more likely that they would just 
hard code the data source for that specific application.

Note that the regular data sources have actually three ways of being 
stored, serializable, referencable or as a class name and a set of java 
bean properties. The latter approach will also work for 

So, I would say only make EmbeddedSimpleDataSource if there's some 
demand for it, I wouldn't do it just to make it the same as the others.
