Client : Gemstone Systems Pvt. Ltd, Pune (Dec 2009)

Project Name: Auto Serialization of C# Types for Native Client

Project Description:

The delivered serialization tool enabled automatic serialization of domain classes for value objects, so that customers were not required to understand Gemfire™ serialization while writing domain classes. Thus, .NET domain classes were no longer required to implement traditional Gemfire™ API's, and there were no restrictions on writing equivalent java classes for server-side de-serialization of value objects.

This tool adequately provided backward and forward compatibility and completely avoided the use of ‘reflection’ to retrieve metadata. It focused on optimized approach of generic .NET containers thus avoided writing the type information for each object. All C# types such as generic and non generic containers along with classes were serialized using this approach.
