java.io.Serializable and HashMap

Hi all,

I need some help with serialization. In my app I use a custom object which contains HashMap<String, ArrayList<String>>.
When I try to tranfer this object to the server I get some serialization exception
(was not assignable to 'com.google.gwt.user.client.rpc.IsSerializable' and did not have a custom field serializer.
For security purposes, this type will not be deserialized.)
I tried to use a custom field serializer without any luck.
The Problem is that I MUST use java.io.Serializable and cannot use IsSerializable which works fine. Is there a reliable way
to use java.io.Serializable with my HashMap?


Regards and Thanke Rainer

Welcome to the Ranch.

HashMap already implements Serializable It is not the problem.
Is your custom object serializable

Thanks for your quick reply, can you please be clearer? I read a couple of threads about this topic and I think I get lost. My custom object consists of Strings, Boolean, Long and this HashMap. What do you think is wrong?

What I meant was does your custom object implement serializable?
Let's make it easy. Show us your custom object code. (Don't forget to UseCodeTags though ;) )

Thank you.
Can you also show us the full exception stack trace?

Is your Report under shared?
If yes, then I cannot help further than suggesting a full clean build

Aha!
/client - all your UI code goes here
/server - all your server code goes here
/shared - all your data code goes here

Just refactor under shared and you should be good

Maneesh!! are you sure, this is going to make a difference. whatever you have written is a convention in my opinion (I strongly agree that we all should organize classes like this in a GWT application.)
Both the client and shared packages are on the GWT client side.
There is no any difference between the client & shared packages. please correct me if i am wrong.

Thanks

Hi Rainer,

if the issue still persists, just change the Map to HashMap & List to ArrayList ( or any other implementer which you are using) and give it a try .
Providing concrete datatypes sometimes resolves the serialization issues and also enhances the performance.

Thanks

Hi, thank you for the reply, I will try using the concrete types.

It is a convention and a good convention at that. Remember, anything (including UI and data) has to be Java<->JS translatable. By default, the GWT "compiler" is configured to pick everything under client and shared.
