BlazeDS serialization question

Oct 25, 2010 5:29 AM

I recently came into a situation when sending a nested object from Java to Flex via a HashMap the Objects were null. More precisely:

final Map<Integer, List<String>> tempMap = new HashMap<Integer, List<String>>();

would send the keys as integers but the values were all null.


But when sending the same with String keys:

final Map<String, List<String>> tempMap = new HashMap<String, List<String>>();

the objects came thru.


Are there any restrictions in BlazeDS serialization when using complex types as keys?

    Just in case anyone is still looking for an answer to this issue, I just ran into the same problem.  During my investigation, I learned that BlazeDS serialization is expecting only String key values for Map objects.   Since the Map coming in has Integer keys, the key is changed to a string by the serialization.  At that point, the value cannot be obtained and serialized.  Change the Integer key to a String and it works.  Here is the site that helped me get it working.
