If you want to do the same thing, your "AAA" needs to be serializable
and you need to mark all non-serializable fields as "@transient". The
only performance penalty you'll be paying is the serialization /
deserialization of the "AAA" instance, which most probably will be
really small compared to the actual work the task will be doing.

Unless your class is holding a whole lot of data, in which case you
should start thinking about using a broadcast instead.
