Using the Serialver Tool

Java provides a mechanism to know the serialization properties of a given class.

Command: serialver -show

The above command will bring up a window titled Serial Version Inspector with fields Full Class Name and Serial Version.

The input to the Full Class Name has to be provided and then click on the show button. This will display the serialization details of the given class.

The name has to be the classname (for example: if the class is UsingBraces.class, then only UsingBraces is needed)

In case, the given class is not serialized, it displays that the class UsingBraces is not serializable.
