what is "transient"? I found somewhere:

public transient int Number;
It indicates that a member variable should not be stored when an object
is serialized. You can find more on this in the "Serialization"
section of the JDK documentation.
Does it exist in other languages (C++), or in Java only?
I am not aware of any other languages that have this keyword, but some
might. C++ does not.
