Helper for common serialization-compatible instantiation functions

Author(s):
Leonardo Mesquita
 
public class SerializationInstantiatorHelper {

   
Returns the first non-serializable superclass of a given class. According to Java Object Serialization Specification, objects read from a stream are initialized by calling an accessible no-arg constructor from the first non-serializable superclass in the object's hierarchy, allowing the state of non-serializable fields to be correctly initialized.

Parameters:
type Serializable class for which the first non-serializable superclass is to be found
Returns:
The first non-serializable superclass of 'type'.
