Description
If a non-public class is forced into the serialized form page using @serial, and the class has a serializable superclass, the superclass is a vital part of the specification of the non-public class, but there is no indication anywhere in the output as to what the superclass must be. As an example, look at the output produced for java.net.SocketPermissionCollection; it should be specified that this has java.security.PermissionCollection as its superclass, but there is no such indication.

EVALUATION Are you suggesting that the java.net.SocketPermissionCollection class simply have a link to its superclass, or that the superclass actually appear in the serialized form page? java.security.PermissionCollection (public, serializable) | +-java.net.SocketPermissionCollection (package-private, serializable) Declarations and @serial tags are: /** * (no @serial tag) */ public abstract class PermissionCollection extends Object implements Serializable /** * @serial include */ final class SocketPermissionCollection extends PermissionCollection implements Serializable ###@###.### 2002-04-26 Bob's suggestion to add the "extends" clause is the way to go. ###@###.### 2002-04-30 I have fixed this bug. The bug fix is pending review. ###@###.### 2002-07-08 I have putback this fix. ###@###.### 2002-09-30
