Sanne Grinovero asked me to drop a quick note about the API used to
discover JBoss Marshalling implementations. Since 1.2.0.GA, you can use
the org.jboss.marshalling.Marshalling class methods to locate protocol
implementations without involving a hard dependency in your sources.
I've heard that Infinispan uses this pattern to load the implementation
This is a bit kludgey though and is considerably more complex than just
which uses the java.util.ServiceLoader API to locate and instantiate the
appropriate implementation class, also using the TCCL, and should be
functionally equivalent (yet quite a bit cleaner) to the former.
