Favorite feature: XML Serialization

Posted by Kirby Turner on August 2, 2002

I have said it before and I will say it again. XML Serialization ROCKS! I am working on a new version for WASTEDBoarding.com this weekend and I am taking a totally new approach to the architecture of the software. One approach includes using XML Serialization to save object hierarchies to a SQL Server database.

Here’s how it works. All my core classes are serializable. ToString() has been overridden to return the object hierarchy in an XML string. I pass the XML string to a stored procedure in SQL Server, which in turns saves out the information to the appropriate tables. All of this totally rocks!
