Serializing SDI document data into two parts.

Hi,

I am working on a SDI application. My CDocument derived class holds a linked list of pointers to CObject derived objects which contains other linked lists of CObject derived objects. The first linked list contains data that almost never changes. The other linked lists  are much more variable.
Is it possible to serialize this document data into two parts for an SDI application. Lets say the more static data in a file with extension .ext1 and the more variable data in a file with extension .ext2. Is this good programming design and if it is, how presisely could this be achieved ?

Yes, sure you can do it and could be a good programming practice if the case is proper.
By example, you can open a file with some extension, let say (.map, a city map), but as you create interest points, you can save them in a separate file (.ipt) because you don't want or you can't alter map file.
To achieve that, you have to build your own serialization functions (CDocument::Serialize is not the unique way). Also you can trap the OnNewDocument(), OnOpenDocument(), OnSaveDocument() and OnCloseDocument() document's events you manage serialization as you desire (even can not store in a standard file but in a database, or update a portion of an existing file).
