package com.stevesoft.xmlser -- serializing your objects to xml


Have you ever generated an file using Java's serialization mechanism and later wished you could read it and/or modified it using a text editor? Wouldn't it be nice if the serialization mechanism produced xml? That is what xmlser is for.

You can use it in one of two ways -- from within your code or from the command line.

From the command line it works this way:


  java -jar xmlser-beta2.jar -bin2xml < my_binary_file > my_xml_file.xml
or this way

  java -jar xmlser-beta2.jar -xml2bin < my_xml_file.xml > my_binary_file

This allows you to read your existing serialized files, modify them by hand using a text editor if you want, then recreate them in default serialized form.

The second way to use this software is from within your existing source code. You simply replace your import statements as follows:


  import java.io.ObjectInputStream;
  import java.io.ObjectOutputStream;
becomes

  import com.stevesoft.xmlser.ObjectInputStream;
  import com.stevesoft.xmlser.ObjectOutputStream;
and continue to use it as you always have done.

Best of all, xmlser is free under the Lesser GNU Public License. Please visit our downloads section to obtain your copy of xmlser.

Requirements: xmlser requires java 1.2 or later, but requires no additional external packages.
