What is the Serialization?

Serialization is the modifying process of a structure of modeling data, made with the purpose of integrating the respective concept into other databases. It is important to find the right format, so the new structure would be fully integrated in the database. The simplest and easiest way of understanding serialization is to take the example of memory buffering, or network connections. A piece of a program is inserted into the memory buffer, with the purpose of integrating the respective structure into another structure later.

This secondary structure could be another program, another computer, or another network node. Serialization is used to create an identical clone with the initial program, and to adapt it to fit into the new structure. However, for complex objects, it is impossible to create the perfect clone, therefore there are secondary methods used to create the clone that fits the secondary system. You will find this process under the name deflating, but it is basically the same process: the procedure of extracting data from a string of binary codes, as a method to describe objects, with the purpose of placing the respective objects into a new compatible structure. It is a method of distributing objects, which is commonly used to improve programs and software, and to create updated versions of the respective codes.
