Hi Peter,

An inner class is actually a separate class that contains a reference to 
the containing class.
When the class is serialized it will serialize that reference (since I 
presume it is not transient).
If the class is static then it will not have a rreference to the 
containing class but that may not be suitable for other reasons.
