XStream: how to serialize objects to non XML formats

Tech Add comments

Joe has talked about XStream: how to serialize objects to non XML formats.

As was mentioned in the comments, this could be tweaked to have a reader/writer combo which could understand YAML.

This way it would be both more readable (which Joe wanted), and usable as a format itself.

It would even be kinda cool to have an abstraction so you could:

Person p = (Person) xstream.load(”bloke”);

And it would look for bloke.xml, bloke.yml, … and grab the one that comes up.
