Class SerializerRegistrationsMessage

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class SerializerRegistrationsMessage extends AbstractMessage
Holds a compiled set of message registration information that can be sent over the wire. The received message can then be used to register all of the classes using the same IDs and same ordering, etcetera. The intent is that the server compiles this message once it is sure that all serializable classes have been registered. It can then send this to each new client, and they can use it to register all of the classes without requiring exactly reproducing the same calls that the server did to register messages.

Normally, JME recommends that apps have a common utility method that they call on both client and server. However, this makes pluggable services nearly impossible as some central class has to know about all registered serializers. This message implementation gets around by only requiring registration on the server.
