What is serialization?

  Shared By: Jonathan Harrison    Date: Oct 29    Category: .Net Framework    Views: 859

Answer:

Serialization is the process of converting an object into a stream of bytes. Deserialization is the opposite process, i.e. creating an object from a stream of bytes. Serialization/Deserialization is mostly used to transport objects (e.g. during remoting), or to persist objects (e.g. to a file or database).
