Thanks everybody about all your comments...

I thought that serialisation was some kind of a standard, and had no 
idea an Php array serialised had no equivalent in Java... So if it is 
the case I will definitly use a different format.

And yes JSON seems like the more elegant and right way to go. I'll have 
my arrays JSONed in PHP and unJSONed in Java as easily as they are 
serialised. Should be quite easy.

Many thanks everybody for your help.

Long life to memcached, this is a wonderful product that served me well 
in the past few years, and I'm sure will serve me for a long time.
