public interface Serializer

The Serializer interface provides the capability of reading and writing a Java object from and to an in-memory buffer. <p/> Serializer implementations should implement the ClassLoaderAware interface if they need access to a ClassLoader. However, to support hot-deploying containers, it is important that a Serializer not hold any strong references to that ClassLoader, or to any Class objects obtained from that ClassLoader.
