        Cool - sounds great!
        Do you still want any help with this? I've probably got some spare time over the next couple of weeks - so could probably help out if you want?

        Give me a shout and let me know...

        Cheers,

        Dave

          I already commited the changes for arrays. The package is not on labs yet but it's on CVS already.

          I improved the way arrays are serialized but there still some space for improvement.

          I'm using auto-boxing for every final field, and I'm going to change that.


          I'm considering to create a container class for every final field and use proper reflection operations for each final field instead of converting them to Objects. (java.lang.Number).


          If you can think of a design for this, it would be a great contribution.

          Take a look on the testcases, and also take a look on the package called persisters, and methods that I called writeMySelf. These places is where the current auto-boxing are happening.

            We just created a forum for JBossSerialization.

            So, I'm moving this whole thread to that forum.

              I have uploaded the new jar into labs.

              If you could test it please.

                Hi,

                I have been tried jboss serialization and compared results with Java5 and jdk1.4.2_08 and we found that Jboss serialization the slowest. The following is the test data. The need to serialize is because we plan to write the objects to file, hence we large SQL result set and the same objects can be used for pagination.

                Customer - which contains?
                id (Long)
                first name (String)
                last name (String)
                gender phone number (Integer)
                status (Integer)
                List (10 policy objects)
                Address (address line 1, 2, 3 as strings and 50 address
                history same properties as Address address line 1 2 3)
                List (50 customer history changes made to customer details)
                Policy (which is contained in customer)
                id (Long)
                List (100 claim objects)
                Claim (which is contained in policy)
                id (Long)
                amount (Double)
                claimType (Integer)

                Of this object structure we created 100 customers and 50 customers
                In a ArrayList and tested writing and reading of 100 and 50 customer
                Lists Following is the results when we ran Jprofiler on the code.

                No of Customer | Library | time to write | time to read |
                100 | J2SE 1.4.2_08 | 3,312 Ms | 3,045 Ms |
                100 | Java 5 (best) | 1,941 Ms | 1,388 Ms |
                100 | Jboss Serialization |out of memory exp |
                ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                50 | J2SE 1.4.2_08 | 728 Ms | 557 Ms |
                50 | Java 5 (best) | 362 Ms | 315 Ms |
                50 | Jboss Serialization | 941 Ms | 1,209 Ms |

                Hope this data help.

                  We need the test program itself. Post it to a jira issue in:
                  http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBSER

                    I have created a test package based in your post, and I got these results:


                    test-100-jboss-serialization
                    Time to write = 1191
                    Time to read = 1663

                    test-100-JavaSerialization-1.5
                    Time to write = 1652
                    Time to read = 831

                    test-50-JBoss
                    Time to write = 351
                    Time to read = 320

                    test-50-Java
                    Time to write = 281
                    Time to read = 270


                    This is using CVS, which is a newer version than the one I posted into labs. (I'm about to create a new version)

                    I will make some optimizations based on this test.

                    I'm assuming I can make your tests as part on CVS as a contribution. (I would keep the author tags of course).

                      For test-100-jboss-serialization I had to increase memory in order to pass the memory error. I'll research based on that.

                        Just one correction:


                        The testcase I had was using lots of strings. I have made them unique, and the test now is a little bit more reliable:

                        test-100-jboss-serialization
                        Time to write = 1552
                        Time to read = 1462

                        test-100-JavaSerialization-1.5
                        Time to write = 1743
                        Time to read = 1021

                        test-50-JBoss
                        Time to write = 290
                        Time to read = 351

                        test-50-Java
                        Time to write with JBS = 310
                        Time to read with JBS = 251

                          Yes offcourse you can make it a part of the contribution. As soon as you release a new version i will run a test on that.

                            I have found that on Solaris 10, Java serialization performance exceeds that of JBoss serialization for single-threaded applications across a variety of object types.

                            However, in multi-threaded applications I have found the opposite to be true. It would seem that Java serialization has some sort of synchronization bottleneck in something called:

                            java.lang.Ref.ReferenceQueue$Lock

                            For highly threaded applications, JBoss performance and scalability greatly exceeded that of plain old Java Serialization.

                            For larger sample sizes the difference between Java and JBoss diverged. So, I think the answer to the "which is faster?" question is correctly answered by the age-old response "It depends."

                            If your application is highly threaded and needs to scale, JBoss is likely for you. If single threaded serialization is fine, Java serialization may be for you.

                            Of course, the landscape is likely to change again in Java 1.6 and 1.7. However, until WebSphere supports this version of the JDK, it is not relevant for my situation.
