implement PofSerializer, serialize/deserialize not invoked

I have an object of a certain type that I want to put in coherence and a serializer for this type which implements PofSerializer. When I put/get the object to/from coherence, I expect serialize/deserialize methods to be called. But I have breakpoints in the serializer class and I can see that these overridden methods are not invoked. Can you help me with that? I will put the classes and configurations here:
public class Item extends CacheItem {
     private String guid;
     private String cvc;
     public String getGuid() {
          return guid;
     public void setGuid(String guid) {
          this.guid = guid;
     public String getCvc() {
          return cvc;
     public void setCvc(String cvc) {
          this.cvc = cvc;
The serializer:
public class CacheItemSerializer implements PofSerializer {

     public Object deserialize(PofReader reader) throws IOException {
          Item item = new CardCacheItem();
          return item;

     public void serialize(PofWriter writer, Object o) throws IOException {
          Item item = (Item) o;
          writer.writeString(0, item.getCvc());
          writer.writeString(0, item.getGuid());
          writer.writeInt(2, item.getAcc());
          writer.writeDouble(3, item.getAm());
In these two methods above I have breakpoints and they are not invoked.

The pof-config.xml file:

      <!-- User types must be above 1000 -->
I initialize the cache like this:
namedCache = CacheFactory.getCache(cacheName);
And then call put/get on the namedCache object.

I have the following arguments set:
And in the console I see that it loads the pof file.

That's about all the configuration I make. Am I missing something?
