Kryo is a fast and efficient object graph serialization framework for Java. The goals of the project are speed, efficiency, and an easy to use API. The project is useful any time objects need to be persisted, whether to a file, database, or over the network.
Kryo can also perform automatic deep and shallow copying/cloning. This is direct copying from object to object, not object->bytes->object.
This documentation is for v2+ of Kryo. See V1Documentation for v1.x.
If you are planning to use Kryo for network communication, the KryoNet project may prove useful.
