Ma object serialization
Last updated at 8:53 am UTC on 3 April 2017
Squeak provides several ways to serialize objects. Ma object serialization offers access to the objects in their serialized state via a domain of first-class "Buffers". MaSerializedGraphBuffer encapsulates a single ByteArray to efficiently enumerate each MaObjectBuffer, a description of a single object, in the graph.
These features are essential for the Magma object-database as well as the Ma client server framework. They use the Ma Serializer.
