Sorry for being so inaccurate. I didn't mean to serialize an object
stream into the jcr content node. By serializing objects I meant
reflecting on its class properties to create or update node

There are currently two modes of object persistence:
1. Objects are stored into the JCR by java reflection. Primitive types
are mapped to node properties one by one. For every complex object a
new node is created (with node properties for each primitive).
2. Objects are stored into the JCR by xml serialization. One node
property is created for the whole xml serialized object.

Mode 1. is the standard (recommended) way.
