    Handle throws MarshalException when serialized

    phil_brown Newbie

      The following causes a MarshalException -

      ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
      ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(baos);
      oos.writeObject(_ejb.getHandle()); // <-- Throws

      - whereas this (bizarre code) works -

      oos.writeObject(_ejb.getHandle().getEJBObject().getHandle());

      The ejb in question is a stateful session bean and the serialization is occurring on the web tier.

      Is this a bug? Why should getting the handle from getEJBObject be different from getting the handle straight from the EJB itself?
