CCC request 4460983 (http://ccc.sfbay/4460983) mentions that java.rmi.activation.Activatable objects should not be serialized/deserialized:
Deserializing an instance of java.rmi.activation.Activatable has never worked in any previous Sun J2SE implementation. Also, doing so is not something that an application should ever have a good reason to do. This flaw in the specification was only detected by the writing of a test for it-- it has never been reported through normal usage.
So, please, add following comments into the class javadoc to point this:
* serialize a <code>Activatable</code> object will fail.
* @serial exclude
