Registering Non-Generic Classes
You can use either of the two ways described below to register your classes for compact serialization.
If you want to mark a class for compact serialization that requires parameterized constructor, make sure that the class contains a default constructor.
Using NCache Web Manager
Launch NCache Web Manager by browsing to http://localhost:8251 (Windows) or
<server-ip>:8251(Windows + Linux).
In the left navigation bar, click on Clustered Caches or Local Caches, based on the cache to configure.
Against the cache name, click on View Details.
This opens up the detailed configuration page for the cache. Go to the Advanced Settings tab and click on Compact Serialization in the left bar.
Click the Add Types button, a new Select Compact Classes dialog box will open up.
Against Library, click on "..." and select the required file which contains the classes. The classes will be listed from the selected assembly in Loaded Class list box.
Select the desired classes, which you want to register with NCache for compact serialization, and click Add Classes.
- Click OK to add classes. It lists fully qualified names of all selected classes in Compact Serialization tab.
- Click on Save Changes to apply this configuration to the cache.
Add-CompactType cmdlet enables the user to register a custom object for compact serialization for the given caches.
This command defines a compact type for demoClusteredCache. You can define further types one by one repeating the step for other types.
Add-CompactType -CacheName demoClusteredCache -AssemblyPath C:\Data.dll -Class Alachisoft.NCache.Sample.Data.Customer
Add-CompactType -CacheName demoClusteredCache -AssemblyPath C:\Data.dll -Class Alachisoft.NCache.Sample.Data.Customer -NonCompactAttributes hireDate
