I needed to write a test method for Serialization that does NOT use a file so I came up with the following code:



But, this seems to go into a infinite loop. Do I have to use Pipes this way or is there a simpler Stream that could be used in place of any actual file. This test will allow my development envionrment to simulate production Google App Engine environment with regard to Session variables that are serialized with every request.

Thanks,
J

I usually use ByteArrayOutputStream and ByteArrayInputStream.

Actually, I was able to get this exact code to work...apparently one of the members in my test had bad data or something like that. But, I'll keep Array bytes in mind for future use! Thanks, J
