Serialization is a Data Format which uses the standard Java Serialization mechanism to unmarshal a binary payload into Java objects or to marshal Java objects into a binary blob.
For example the following uses Java serialization to unmarshal a binary file then send it as an ObjectMessage to ActiveMQ
from("file://foo/bar"). unmarshal().serialization(). to("activemq:Some.Queue");
This data format is provided in camel-core so no additional dependencies is needed.
