Subject serialize hand-crafted appender
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2006 14:38:30 GMT

I've prepared ACLAppender which extends non-serializable
AppenderSkeleton. This appender is attached to SystemAgent's logger,
which is <transient> field of the Agent. But during serialization
(standard -- no changes made to writeObject() method) I got

  java.io.NotSerializableException: jacs.core.debug.ACLAppender

I suppose this could be caused by <NON-transient> references to the
appender (the only one I know is reference to the SystemAgent instance
passed by ACLAppender constructor) thus I decided to call
beforeSerialization() method and re-create logger after successful
Please see the code below:
public class SystemAgent extends Agent {
  protected transient Logger logger;
  protected void setup() {
    logger = Logger.getLogger(getLoggerName());
    logger.addAppender(new ACLAppender(this));

  protected void beforeSerialization() {
    Appender appender = logger.getAppender(ACLAppender.ACL_APPENDER_NAME);
    appender = null;
    logger = null;

Unfortunately there is still the exception. Do you know why?
I would be greatful for any help,
