·         transient keyword is used when we are Serializing an object.

·         The keyword transient in Java used to indicate that the variable should not be serialized By default all the variables in the object is converted to persistent state.

·         In some cases, you may want to avoid persisting some variables because you don’t have the necessity to transfer across the network. So, you can declare those variables as transient.

·         If the variable is declared as transient, then it will not be persisted. It is the main purpose of the transient keyword.
