Do you like to promote your wxWidgets based application or component!? Post it here and let's see what the critics have to say. Also, if you found that ONE wx component the world needs to know about, put it here for future reference.

Been thinking about that yes. I have not had much time during my evenings but I am slowly getting back to programming (this time with (wx)Python for the fun of it) and I will update my page again. I have a lot of unfinished business to attend to ;-)

Looks VERY, VERY interesting to me as not a long time ago I've started creating my own serialization library. Are you interested in discussing this subject? One thing I really need is serialization solution existing for C++ and Java. That is I'd like to serialize same date by C++ program and then read it by Java program. As I found your library I'm wondering if I shoudn't just write Java version of wxArchive. In that case your help would be necessary.

One thing I found in your library - it seems below method
(taken from doxygen-generated documentation available form http://www.xs4all.nl/~jorgb/components/ ... chive.html) should be named ReadArrayString:

bool ReadString (wxArrayString &value, const wxArrayString &defval)

Anyway I'm impressed. Such a library should be included into official wxWidgets distribution.

Thanks,

I am thinking about renaming it wxSerialize and revamping it a bit to offer it to the community. wxArchive was taken by a packing library which I later found out. The two won't bite if you don't use the one at wxCode ;-)

If you want to discuss it, feel free to contact me at jorgb [a] xs4all.nl

The serialization format is straight forward and platform binary compatible. It is type safe and able to read old streams in a newer version without much trouble, and even newer streams in older applications if you set it up correctly from the beginning.
