.NET serialization specification

P: n/a
Is there an official specification for .NET serialization? I've looked at
the .NET framework docs and read Jeffrey Richter's MSDN articles, but I'm
looking for something more complete, corresponding to the specification of
Java serialization found at
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2...alTOC.doc.html

Hi Mike --

I've never found an "official" specification, but there's a pretty good
detailed description in the book Microsoft .NET Remoting, by Scott McLean,
James Naftel, and Kim Williams (Microsoft Press). There's also a
specification published by the Mono folks, but I can't vouch for its
accuracy as a description of Microsoft binary serialization:

Thanks, Wayne, I'll have a look.

Oh, and if anyone at Microsoft is listening, have a look at the Java link.
A company that's serious about attracting enterprise developers makes
information like this available.
