C++ Serial Tutorials
Binary Serialization In C#
In a previous tutorial we talked about serialization and the various option for formatting its data output. In this document we will talk about binary serialization. Binary serialization is used for communication between .Net applications and is not a human-readable format. Windows relies on serialization for many important tasks such as remoting and copying items to the clipboard.
Serialization In C#
Many applications need to communicate with other applications to exchange data or store data in the hard disk. The .Net framework has made these tasks quite simple by including the serialization technique, which can convert objects into binary, SOAP(Simple Object Access Protocol ) or XML documents in order to provide a convenient way for storing and transferring information. Besides the three mentioned format types you can also implement custom serialization to take complete control of the serialization output.
XML Serialization In C#
Serialization is the process of persisting an object to disk. Another application can deserialize your object and it will be in the same state it was before the serialization. This tutorial talks about XML serialization. The namespace containing classes and methods suitable for such a serialization is System.Xml.Serialization.
