Of all the things that people have asked me for over my years at Microsoft; object persistence has to be near the top. We still don’t have it in the .NET framework but the community got tired of waiting and went out and ported a Java framework known as Hibernate to .NET to create NHibernate. My guest on this show Ben Day has been doing a lot of work with NHibernate and was speaking at VSLive San Francisco on the subject so I grabbed him to get the scoop.

    Wait a Second. Then, What's Serialization for ? Is'nt it Object Persistance ?

    Serialization is not the same thing as what most people think of when they refer to object persistence.  I suppose it would be possible to create your own serialization implementation and then use it do persist objects but the serializer(s) that exist in .NET today serialize to XML or to a binary format for .NET remoting.
