Class XmlSerializer

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.shiro.io.XmlSerializer
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializer

public class XmlSerializer
extends Object
implements Serializer

Serializer implementation that uses the JavaBeans XMLEncoder and XMLDecoder to serialize and deserialize, respectively.

NOTE: The JavaBeans XMLEncoder/XMLDecoder only successfully encode/decode objects when they are JavaBeans compatible!

Since:
0.9

Constructor Summary
XmlSerializer()
           
 
Method Summary
 Object deserialize(byte[] serialized)
          Deserializes the specified serialized source back into an Object by using a ByteArrayInputStream to wrap the argument and then decode this stream via an XMLDecoder, where the readObject call results in the original Object to return.
 byte[] serialize(Object source)
          Serializes the specified source into a byte[] array by using the XMLEncoder to encode the object out to a ByteArrayOutputStream, where the resulting byte[] array is returned.

Method Detail

serialize

public byte[] serialize(Object source)
Serializes the specified source into a byte[] array by using the XMLEncoder to encode the object out to a ByteArrayOutputStream, where the resulting byte[] array is returned.

Specified by:
serialize in interface Serializer

source - the Object to convert into a byte[] array.
Returns:
the byte[] array representation of the XML encoded output.

deserialize

public Object deserialize(byte[] serialized)
Deserializes the specified serialized source back into an Object by using a ByteArrayInputStream to wrap the argument and then decode this stream via an XMLDecoder, where the readObject call results in the original Object to return.

Specified by:
deserialize in interface Serializer
Parameters:
serialized - the byte[] array representation of the XML encoded output.
Returns:
the original source Object in reconstituted form.
