XmlSerializer vs SoapFormatter


XmlSerializer can serialize data to a file, but SoapFormatter can do the same except that the serialized data in the file is not proper Xml : for instance there is no XmlRoot-element.

Why then use SoapFormatter at all ?

Is there a way to utilize the IDeserializationCallback interface with the standard XmlSerializer? It does not appear to be supported in this context. IDeserializationCallback works fine when used with the binary or SOAP formatters. Should I assume that a custom formatter is needed to support IDeserializationCallback when producing non-SOAP XML? Any insight would be appreciated.

Hi all, i'm looking for some performance comparison some charts. I have read the xmlserializer is better, more flexible and faster (analyzing data types in constructor), but there are some limitation (i.e. public members). SoapFormatter is better to serialize arbitrary data. I have done some tests and SoapFormatter is faster 5 times than XmlSerializer. I don't undestand it, I have tried large arrays, small string .... the result seems the...

Hello, I hope this is the right group to post this to. I'm trying to serialize a class I've written and I'd like to be able to serialze to both binary and xml formats.

We currently persist our objects to xml/soap files using a SoapFormatter. We control the serialization and de-serialization by implementing the ISerializable and its two interface methods, namely, GetObjectData and a constructor that takes two arguments (a SerializationInfo object and a StreamingContext object). It appears with the release of .net 2.0 that support for the SoapFormatter is 'frozen' and that the direction we should take is...

Can I control XmlSerializer's serialization/deserialization process by implementing ISerializable on the class I'm serializing? I'm doing exactly this with the SoapFormatter and I was wondering if it is the same for the XmlSerializer.

I have an application where I have to make a tree of objects. To do this, I have my own node class. At certain points in the application, I need to save data. I am having a problem with the SoapFormatter. The following program gets the exception: "The data at the root level is invalid. Line 55, position -460." This code works fine if I use a BinaryFormatter instead of a SoapFormatter. Any ideas? Here is a test program:

Hi there. I posted an earlier issue under the name "That assembly does not allow partially trusted callers" but have now identified what the issue is.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
