Serialize Your Domain Objects with IPdxSerializer
For domain objects that you cannot or do not want to modify, use the
IPdxSerializer class to serialize and deserialize the object’s fields.
You use one
IPdxSerializer implementation for the entire cache, programming it for all of the domain objects that you handle in this way. This way you do not have to implement the
IPdxSerializable interface for each domain class.
IPdxSerializer, you leave your domain object as-is and handle the serialization and deserialization in the separate serializer. You register the serializer in your cache PDX configuration. Then program the serializer to handle all of the domain objects you need.
If you write your own
IPdxSerializer and you also use the
ReflectionBasedAutoSerializer, then the
IPdxSerializer needs to own the
ReflectionBasedAutoSerializer and delegate to it. A cache can only have a single
fromData methods differ from those for
IPdxSerializable. They have different parameters and results.
To register an
IPdxSerializer, you can use the following code. Note that you can only register the
IPdxSerializer in the application code. It cannot be configured declaratively in
using GemStone.GemFire.Cache.Generic; ... // Register a PdxSerializer to serialize // domain objects using PDX serialization Serializable.RegisterPdxSerializer(new MyPdxSerializer());
