When attempting to serialize a bean, which uses property change support, XStream throws the following exepection.
message : Cannot create java.beans.PropertyChangeSupport by JDK serialization : null
cause-exception : com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.reflection.ObjectAccessException
The only solution I found was to ignore the field pointing to the PropertyChangeSupport class in the class, which is to be serialized by adding „transient“.
private transient PropertyChangeSupport propertySupport;
