Auto Network Lib 1.12.2 (Network Message Serialization Library) for Minecraft 1.12.2

Updated: Jun 10, 2019 | 54 views |

Auto Network Lib 1.12.2 is an automatic network packet serialization library. When writing network code modders need to manually serialize and deserialize all fields in a packet. This library can do it automatically so that you don’t have to write boiler plate code. You only need to declare fields in a packet. Networking code in Minecraft is running in a separate thread from main game thread and because of this before doing anything you need to schedule task in main thread and handle everything in there. This library automatically schedules task in main thread. Out of the box this library supports serialization for following data types: int, long, float, double, boolean, Integer, Long, Float, Double, Boolean, String, NBTTagCompound, ItemStack, char, byte, short, Character, Byte, Short, BlockPos, Vec3d, Color3f. This library can automatically serialize following generic java collections: List, ArrayList, Stack, Vector, LinkedList, Set, HashSet, Map<T,K>, HashMap<T,K>. This library can automatically serialize arrays of any type but currently only one dimensional arrays supported. This library can automatically serialize supported generic collections inside of other supported generic collections. For example it can serialize following data types: HashMap<Integer, List>, List<List<List>>, HashMap<List, List>. Optimized for perfomance. Reflection is used only once on first serialization of packet after that no reflection is needed. Also it uses method handles instead of reflection to read and write data which is faster then access via reflection.
