What is serialization/deserialization support in SOAP encoding rules? I am refering to the book 'Develeoping Java Web services'
By Nagappan. It says,

serializers and deserializers supporting SOAP encoding rules provide the encoding and decoding of data on runtime by mapping
XML elements to target application objects and vice versa


I have not understood the meaning of this stsmt? can anybody make it simpler?

Remove the middle part and it becomes more understandable:
serializers and deserializers provide the encoding and decoding of data on runtime by mapping XML elements to target application objects and vice versa
In more simple terms, serializers are responsible for taking a <myobject><id>123</id></myobject> and turning it into an instance of com.foobar.MyObject with id "123". Deserializers are responsible for reversing the above process.

Oops. I wrote them down the wrong way...
Serializer: convert Java objects to XML
Deserializer: convert XML to Java objects
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
