Serialization is a process of converting an object into a stream of data, to easily transfer over the network or to save to disk. So, using this concept of serialization, we can serialize any object to XML string.
Here is a person class that we can serialize.
Using Serialization in .NET is provided by the System.Runtim.Serialization name space.
Once you have the XML string, now you can save it to disk, store it into database, or transfer over the network.
Here is the deserialization method that takes serialized string of XML into the person object.
