interface SerializationCustomSerializer<OBJ, PROXY>

Allows CorDapps to provide custom serializers for third party libraries where those libraries cannot be recompiled with the -parameters flag rendering their classes natively serializable by Corda. In this case a proxy serializer can be written that extends this type whose purpose is to move between those an unserializable types and an intermediate representation.

NOTE: The proxy object should be specified as a separate class. However, this can be defined within the scope of the custom serializer.



Should facilitate the conversion of the proxy object into a new instance of the unserializable type

Should facilitate the conversion of the third party object into the serializable local class specified by PROXY
