Serialize and Deserialize Data

In this example, we are showing how to read data from a local CSV file into Records, serialize those records and finally, deserialize then print the output into the console.

        DataReader reader;
        DataWriter writer;

        // Serialize records to binary file
        reader = new CSVReader(csvFile).setFieldNamesInFirstRow(true);
        writer = new FileWriter(binaryFile);, writer);
        // Deserialize records from binary file
        reader = new FileReader(binaryFile);
        writer = new StreamWriter(System.out);, writer);


Code Walkthrough

  1. A CSVReader is created to read from the local file credit-balance-01.csv.
  2. The serialized records are written to a binary file credit-balance-01.bin using FileWriter.
  3. This binary file is the read using a FileReader.
  4. A StreamWriter is used to print the output to the console in human-readable format.
