Q

Serialization vs. synchronization

What is the difference between serialization and synchronization? Serialization is a mechanism in Java for flattening...

objects out to disk or a stream and then reassembling them on the other end or when they are re-instantiated.

Synchronization is a concurrency mechanism in Java to restrict blocks of shared data/code from being accessed by more than one thread at a time.
