Object Serialization

Another useful feature (which should perhaps have been described in the metaprogramming chapter) is the ability to transfer objects across a network connection and regenerate them on the far side.

Called object serialization, sometimes marshalling.

Again, Java has a nice facility for this. Other langauges may as well, but I'm less familiar with them.

The book gives an example of object serialization.
