Clone an object with Java.

	public static Object clone(Serializable obj) {   
		try {
			ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
			ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(baos);
			ByteArrayInputStream bais = new ByteArrayInputStream(baos.toByteArray());
			ObjectInputStream ois = new ObjectInputStream(bais);
			return ois.readObject();
		} catch (IOException e) {
			return null;
		} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
			return null;

And to test it…

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		MyObject myObject1 = new MyObject();
		MyObject myObject2 = (MyObject)clone(myObject1);
