Kryo is high-performance object serialization and cloning framework for Java. Kryo is useful when Java class objects need to be persisted to a database, transferred over the network, or otherwise cloned between two objects. It provides APIs for reading and writing objects to and from byte arrays, performing deep and shallow copies of objects, and converting serialized objects into streams for further processing such as compression, encryption and chunk-encoding. Built-in Kryo serializers support various object types including primitives, arrays, enums, Strings, collections, maps, beans, and POJOs, and one can write custom serializers. Kryo can be used with KryoNet when objects need to be serialized and transferred over the network.
