    • getBufferSizePredictor

      public BufferSizePredictor getBufferSizePredictor(Class<?> type)
      Get the serialized form size predictor for a particular type.
      type - Marshallable type for which serialized form size will be predicted
      an instance of BufferSizePredictor
    • getBufferSizePredictor

      public BufferSizePredictor getBufferSizePredictor(Object obj)
    • isKnownMarshallable

      public boolean isKnownMarshallable(Class<?> type)
      Returns whether the hint on whether a particular type is marshallable or not is available. This method can be used to avoid attempting to marshall a type, if the hints for the type have already been calculated.
      type - Marshallable type to check whether an attempt to mark it as marshallable has been made.
      true if the type has been marked as marshallable at all, false if no attempt has been made to mark the type as marshallable.
    • isMarshallable

      public boolean isMarshallable(Class<?> type)
      Returns whether a type can be serialized. In order for a type to be considered marshallable, the type must have been marked as marshallable using the markMarshallable(Class, boolean) method earlier, passing true as parameter. If a type has not yet been marked as marshallable, this method will return false.
    • markMarshallable

      public void markMarshallable(Class<?> type, boolean isMarshallable)
      Marks a particular type as being marshallable or not being not marshallable.
      type - Class to mark as serializable or non-serializable
      isMarshallable - Whether the type can be marshalled or not.
    • clear

      public void clear()
      Clear the cached marshallable type hints.
