> gfsh configure pdx makes it somewhat easy to configure the ReflectionBasedAutoSerializer.
All you need to do is give say --auto-serializable-classes=PATTERN and any classes that match
PATTERN will be auto serialized with pdx.
> Currently the v2 api requires that you set the Pdx.setPdxSerializer to a ClassName instance
whose name is "org.apache.geode.pdx.ReflectionBasedAutoSerializer" and whose Properties contain
one with the key "classes" and the value PATTERN.
> The v2 rest api should make it at least as easy as gfsh and it could probably make it
even easier. We should consider making the auto serializer the default if pdx is being configured.
The only issue with this is the auto serializer needs to know which classes it should serialize
and which it should leave alone. So just giving it the pattern ".*" could cause jdk and other
framework classes to be serialized as pdx instead of just the domain classes.
> Another thing that makes it more complicated with gfsh is it has two options; one for
auto-serializable-classes and another for "--portable-auto-serializable-classes". This makes
the command line look more complicated then it should be. I think we could instead just have
the auto serializer pattern and then another boolean attribute that says if the auto serializer
should check that the classes are portable. The whole portable thing has to do with making
sure all the fields can be converted to the native client. Perhaps we don't need to expose
this boolean if we now thing it should always be true or false.
