Re: [Vala] Is there any way to deserialize something into object in vala?

Hi Daniel,

thank you for your suggestion. I was considering GDA but as
performance is quite important in my project, I wanted to recreate
minimal subset of functionality of database abstraction layer by
myself and do that in Vala.

GDA is written in C, so it propably uses the same macros that
json-glib does. But I still wonder if it is possible to do that in
pure Vala?

May you want to test GDA's Vala extensions.

They provides a Record object that could be used as a base class for your
objects and save all your properties directly to a database. Check out
samples/vala code.

Vala extensions are available from

I need to create a sort of abstraction layer between the database and

It would be great if it was possible to interate over my class
properties, read they type etc. and dynamically map fields from the DB
to the properties.

Is there any way to do that?

I know that it is possible within GObject, as json-glib has that
functionality, but is it possible without access to low-level C
GLib/GObject macros? Only in Vala?
