View Thread: Serialization/Deserialization of changed entity
  • ferguslogic

    I have a question regarding .net Serialization...

    Heres an example to help illustrate my question.

    What happens if I have a custom business object similar to this:

    [serializable]
    public class Customer
    {
           public CustomerName {get{}set{}
    }


    and i build serialization/deserialization code for this entity so that it can be written and read back from an xml file.
    (no problems so far..the world is round)

    Now, I decide I need an extra field in my business entity and so I change it to this...

    [serializable]
    public class Customer
    {
           public CustomerName {get{}set{}
           public CustomerPhone {get{}set{}

    }


    Now..can i still deserialize the xml file that  I created before the object was modified?

    thanks in advance!
