Fully aware it’s a 4GL we’re talking about (feel free to call it ABL) and there is no shortage on keywords or anything but seriously… serialization seems to be more fun that error handling nowadays, we have binary vs json serialization, one serialize everything


by default while the other only public properties. To serialize as json private/protected a ’serialize’ keyword was added, to stop serializing certain things as binary the ’non-serializable’ keyword was added in 11.7… we have xml-node-name and serialize-name


(clearly that refers to json serialization) and wait ’serialize-hidden’ and xml-node-type ‘hidden’.

I’m probably just a bit confused, all this must be crystal clear for everyone so will try to get back to it once in a beer free environment :)
