Serialization of data refers to the conversion of an object to a string which can then be sent out to a different system. The options of Alumio Serializer for the object conversion include JSON, XML, cXML, and YAML. A perfect example of serialization would be the requirement of giving a response of XML data.**
Here’s how to do it!
Step 1: Click on Add Data Transformer.
Step 2: Select Value Mapper.
Step 3: Within the Value Mapper, select Key Accessor from the Accessor drop-down menu.
Step 4: Click on Add Keys and specify the key (or keys) that you wish to serialize from an entity data.
Step 5: Click on Add Mappers and select Deserialize.
Step 6: From the Serializer drop-down list, select the data type you want to serialize the key to ( JSON, XML, cXML, and YAML).
Step 7: On clicking the Run Test button, you will see that the Serialize mapper has serialized the specified key into a workable datatype object.
