Hi zollenkong,

I have done some research on the subject (since last time). I think you can implement a C++ de-serializer after reading "Java Object Serialization Specification" (available at www.javasoft).

The most interesting part for you is "Chapter 6: Object Serialization Stream Protocol" found at

I also found in the same chapter
"6.4.1 Rules of the Grammar"
"6.4.2 Terminal Symbols and Constants"


to be of value in reading a serialized objects stream.

Let me know your progress.
(Hope that helps you in your quest)
