Why is XmlSerializer so slow?

  Shared By: Phoebe Brown    Date: Jan 04    Category: .Net Framework    Views: 2684


There is a once-per-process-per-type overhead with XmlSerializer. So the first time you serialize or deserialize an object of a given type in an application, there is a significant delay. This normally doesn't matter, but it may mean, for example, that XmlSerializer is a poor choice for loading configuration settings during startup of a GUI application.
