Is this an example of binary serialization

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi , I have write this code for write error message in .txt file and this code is working fine.

void writeToLogFile(string logMessage)


        string strLogMessage = string.Empty;

        string strLogFile = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["logFilePath"].ToString();

        StreamWriter swLog;

        strLogMessage = string.Format("{0}: {1}", DateTime.Now, logMessage);

        if (!File.Exists(strLogFile))


            swLog = new StreamWriter(strLogFile);




            swLog = File.AppendText(strLogFile);






I want to know is this an example of binary serialization? 
If YES then please inform me from which line the serialization is done? 
If NO then please tell me an example of Binary Serialization ?

Cutting Edge: Binary Serialization of DataSets


The ADO. NET DataSet object plays an essential role in most of today's distributed, multitiered applications. Instances of the DataSet class are used to move data across the tiers and to exchange data with external services.

Cutting Edge: Binary Serialization of ADO.NET Objects


One of the key elements that makes ADO. NET superior to ADO is the level of integration with XML. In ADO, XML is just an I/O format. In addition, the ADO XML format is totally inflexible and doesn't allow any type of customization.

Binary Serialization versioning issue


I have a binary serialization versioning issue that I haven't been able to figure out. Say I start out with the following ( call this V1 )

 interface IFoo
  void Test();

 class Foo : IFoo
  string data = "something";
  Bar bar;
  public Foo() { bar = new Bar(this); }
  public void Test() { Console.WriteLine("Foo {0}", data); }

 class Bar
  IFoo foo;
  public Bar(IFoo foo) { this.foo = foo; }

and then later I add another class ( call this version V2 )


Problem when doing a binary serialization from COM



I am trying to serialize an object using binary and I'm running into an error "Unable to load assembly". I tried creating a new SerializationBinder which loads the correct assembly however it returns an error "The object with ID 7 was referenced in a fixup but does not exist" (I also received the same error but with ID 6).

My code runs in the following way:

A COM visible dll is launched from a VB6 application. This DLL has a reference to a .NET dll which contains the data objects and performs the serialization.

However, If add a new Windows Forms application to the solution, and call the same methods using the same data objects deserialization works without any issues, and no need to reset the binding.

Thank you

Class To Contract: Enrich Your XML Serialization With Schema Providers In The .NET Framework


The Microsoft .NET Framework 1.x provided minimal options for mapping classes to schemas and serializing objects to XML documents, making this sort of mapping quite a challenge. The .NET Framework 2.0 changes all this with Schema providers and the IXmlSerializable interface.

Advanced Serialization: Format Your Way to Success with the .NET Framework Versions 1.1 and 2.0


While .NET offers adequate support for the simple serialization cases, issues arise when you're attempting to support delegates and subscribers, versioning, and class hierarchies. . In addition, the introduction of generics in The .NET Framework breaks new ground in the complexity of the serialization task and the power of serialization tools. This article discusses these issues and related pitfalls, suggests techniques and workarounds that address them, and recommends when and how to best use the new serialization abilities.

	Select @VarBin  = Content , @FileName = [FileName] from MultilangBinaryData Where PKID = @PKID
	SET @FileName = 'C:\'  + @FileName
	EXEC sp_OACreate 'ADODB.Stream' @ObjectToken OUTPUT
	EXEC sp_OASetProperty @ObjectToken, 'Type', 1
	EXEC sp_OAMethod @ObjectToken, 'Open'
