org.snmp4j.asn1 classes are capable of serializing of ASN.1
formatted values into a byte stream and deserializing the same from a byte
stream. There are three groups of classes/interfaces in this package:
BERclass implements the BER serialization and deserialization by providing static methods for encoding/decoding of primitive ASN.1 and Structure of Management Information (SMI) data types.
BERSerializableinterface provides a common interface for all objects that are (de)serializable according to the Basic Encoding Rules (BER).
BEROutputStreamprovide optimized implementations for the serialization and deserialization of the
The following UML class diagram shows the most important classes of the
org.snmp4j.asn1 package and their relationships
(relationships to other packages are not shown):
Interface Summary Interface Description BERSerializableThe interface
BERSerializablehas to be implemented by any data type class that needs to be serialized using the Basic Encoding Rules (BER) that provides enconding rules for ASN.1 data types.
Class Summary Class Description BERThe BER class provides utility methods for the BER encoding and decoding. BER.MutableByteThe
MutableByteclass serves for exchanging type information from the various decode* methods.
BERInputStreamclass wraps a
ByteBufferand implements the
BEROutputStreamclass wraps a
ByteBufferto support BER encoding.
