Casting to the correct format after Serialization

843790 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
i have an API which serializes objects passed into the method by a custom application

public void SerializeObject(Object obj)
{
     
}

Customer c = new Customer();

//my api class
APIClass.SerializeObject(c);

this works fine without a problem.

however i need to de-serialize the same file.
since the API has no understanding of the Customer class how do i cast it correctly
i.e
(???) in.readObject();


i cannot accept it as an Object type bcos the methods dont get invoked for obvious reasons.

how do i sort this problem.
