Serialization.

Serialization.

It used to be a very important concept but looks like everything is taken care of nowadays by the framework. Still, I feel the need to mention the same as I found a lack of resources/ blog to guide about the process. what it means, how to do it etc.

what is serialization?

As per Wikipedia,

serialization (or serialisation) is the process of translating data structures or object state into a format that can be stored.

Serialization we do in usually is to convert our code to JSON/XML or converting JSON/XML code back to object. There is an awesome library available for handling JSON which is Json.Net. It is written by a guy named James Newton King who is from New Zealand and currently working at Microsoft on asp.net team.

I have planned a few post on same topic, out of which all deals with either converting your XML to the object of your choice or the object to the XML.

C# provides extensive support to XML, under the namespce System.Xml. More about the namespace can be explored at apisof.net
