Java – Serialization

javamarshallingoopserialization

I am getting started with Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) and would like to know: what is the meaning of serialization in OOP parlance?

Best Solution

Serialization is the process of turning an object in memory into a stream of bytes so you can do stuff like store it on disk or send it over the network.

Deserialization is the reverse process: turning a stream of bytes into an object in memory.
