  • Hi Matthew,

    it would be nice to have JSON instead of binary Object.writeObject() in the database.

    One can fix class related problems manually for instance ;-).


  • If I see it right, there are 3 ways to serialize/deserialize a object...

    1. writeObject -> Database
    2. JSONRemote* -> Im/Export
    3. Dwr-JSON -> DWR

    Is this right?

  • Technically yes. But all three are intended for different purposes, and have subtle differences. E.g. number 2 could be used for database serialization, but not in its current form because it is XID-based (not a deal breaker, really, but not ideal). Also, the current object serialization assumes data integrity. If it were text-base and therefore human editable, the code should no longer assume this.
