Can I use SmartCloning using JBOSS serialization without the need for Final field serialization on JRE 1.3?
For JVM 1.4.2 I'm using Unsafe operations (the only hook tha allows me to change final fields on JVM 1.4)
I have done it through an interface of JBossSerilization called FieldsManager.
On JVM 1.3 that class is not available, so it's not possible to use JbossSerialization with JVM 1.3.1 at this point.
We would need to implement the appropriate FieldsManager to JVM 1.3.
Thanks for the reply.
I am not gonna need serialization for final fields.
i dont have any final fields in any of my serilizable classes and i have to provide a backward compatiblity till JVM 1.3.
Even this wouldnt give me a green light on
JBOSS serialization over JVM 1.3. is it?
java.util classes will make usage of final fields.
If you are not using any collections, we can make a way to at least make simple serialization with JVM 1.3
