Probably wouldn't be that difficult to add using a custom marshaller. However, what would be the need for this? Any particular use case? Feel free to create a feature request with jira for it.
Had a general doubt. I was thinking of a usecase where the user wanted to secure the channel but not use heavyweight ssl(and the dreaded certificate setup).
SealedObjects provide that flexibility of encrypting serializable objects.
Ok. Create a jira issue under remoting project and I will assign it to a release.
