Serializable class with unconstructable ancestor

Reports Serializable classes whose closest non-serializable ancestor doesn't have a no-argument constructor. Such classes cannot be deserialized and will fail with an InvalidClassException.


class Ancestor { private String name; Ancestor(String name) { = name; } } // warning on this class because the superclass is not // serializable, and its constructor takes arguments class Descendant extends Ancestor implements Serializable { Descendant() { super("Bob"); } }
