Class Overview

A standard provider for native Java types. Currently, this provider supports:

  • Pseudo-support for Object since all objects inherit it
  • Primitive types: boolean, byte, char, short, int, long, float, double
  • Objects wrapping the primitive types: Boolean, Byte, Character, Short, Integer, Long, Float, Double
  • Char-sequence types: String
  • Big-num types: BigInteger and BigDecimal
  • List types: ArrayList, LinkedList, ArrayDeque
  • Set types: HashSet, TreeSet, LinkedHashSet
  • Map types: HashMap, TreeMap, LinkedHashMap, IdentityHashMap
Currently, serializing any other non-native type (or non @Ser type) will result in undefined behavior.

Caveats regarding collections and maps: when serializing those objects, optional parameters such as the initial capacity, the load factor, or even a custom comparator (for tree-sets/maps) are not persisted. Therefore, they cannot be automatically restored. It is up to the implementation to wrap such objects in higher-level classes using a custom constructor that can call the original object (collection or map) constructor's with proper parameters. This is especially critical for TreeMap or TreeSet using custom comparators.
