org.ehcache.spi.serialization
Interface Serializer<T>

Type Parameters:
T - the type of the instances to serialize

public interface Serializer<T>

Defines the contract used to transform type instances to and from a serial form.

Implementations must be thread-safe.

When used within the default serialization provider, there are additional requirements. The implementations must define either or both of the two constructors:

Serializer(ClassLoader loader)
This constructor is used to initialize the serializer for transient caches.
Serializer(ClassLoader loader, org.ehcache.core.spi.service.FileBasedPersistenceContext context)
This constructor is used to initialize the serializer for persistent caches.
The ClassLoader value may be null. If not null, the class loader instance provided should be used during deserialization to load classes needed by the deserialized objects.

The serialized object's class must be preserved; deserialization of the serial form of an object must return an object of the same class. The following contract must always be true:

object.getClass().equals( mySerializer.read(mySerializer.serialize(object)).getClass() )

Method Summary
 booleanequals(T object, java.nio.ByteBuffer binary)
          Checks if the given instance and serial form represent the same instance.
 Tread(java.nio.ByteBuffer binary)
          Reconstructs an instance from the given serial form.
 java.nio.ByteBufferserialize(T object)
          Transforms the given instance into its serial form.
 

Method Detail

serialize

java.nio.ByteBuffer serialize(T object)                              throws SerializerException
Transforms the given instance into its serial form.

Parameters:
object - the instance to serialize
Returns:
the binary representation of the serial form
Throws:
SerializerException - if serialization fails

read

T read(java.nio.ByteBuffer binary)       throws java.lang.ClassNotFoundException,              SerializerException
Reconstructs an instance from the given serial form.

Parameters:
binary - the binary representation of the serial form
Returns:
the de-serialized instance
Throws:
SerializerException - if reading the byte buffer fails
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException - if the type to de-serialize to cannot be found

equals

boolean equals(T object,               java.nio.ByteBuffer binary)               throws java.lang.ClassNotFoundException,                      SerializerException
Checks if the given instance and serial form represent the same instance.

Parameters:
object - the instance to check
binary - the serial form to check
Returns:
true if both parameters represent equal instances, false otherwise
Throws:
SerializerException - if reading the byte buffer fails
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException - if the type to de-serialize to cannot be found
