PofAnnotationSerializer Class Reference

#include <coherence/io/pof/PofAnnotationSerializer.hpp>

Inherits Object, and PofSerializer.

List of all members.

Detailed Description

A PofAnnotationSerializer provides annotation based (de)serialization.

This serializer must be instantiated with the intended class which is eventually scanned for the presence of the following annotations.

This serializer supports classes iff they are annotated with the type level annotation; Portable. This annotation is a marker indicating the ability to (de)serialize using this serializer.

All methods annotated with PortableProperty are explicitly deemed POF serializable with the option of specifying overrides to provide explicit behaviour such as:

The PortableProperty::getIndex() (POF index) can be omitted iff the auto-indexing feature is enabled. This is enabled by instantiating this class with the fAutoIndex constructor argument. This feature determines the index based on any explicit indexes specified and the name of the portable properties. Currently objects with multiple versions is not supported. The following illustrates the auto index algorithm:
NameExplicit IndexDetermined Index
a 0
b 2

NOTE: This implementation does support objects that implement Evolvable.
