Episode 19. But Wait, there’s more! SerialVersionUID! XMLEncoder/Decoder! Java Beans!
We finish our discussion on the ObjectOutputStream by covering the SerialVersionUID, and then move onto ObjectOutputStream’s citadine cousin, XMLEncoder and Decoder (and why would you go and hang out with it). We also make a quick introduction to “The Bean” (Java Beans that is), and discover there isn’t too much to it. If you are persisting and/or transmitting, listen to the shocking conclusion (gasp!) of serialization!
