Package Description

This package supports the Jazz file format. It contains classes for dumping a Jazz scenegraph (or any subtree) to an output stream. It is similar in functionality to Java Serialization, but the file format is more version resistant, and is entirely text-based.

Note that this file format will likely be replaced in the future with an XML based format.
