Serializing objects is an important domain since objects should be stored and reloaded on different environments. There is a plethora of frameworks to serialize objects based on recursive parsing of the object graphs. However such approaches are often too slow. The work presented here is based on the idea that objects are much more times loaded than stored, therefore it is worth to spend time while storing in order to have faster loading and user experience. We present an implementation of a pickle format that is based on clustering similar objects, that reduces loading overhead compared to other approaches.

From the actual code base of Seaside-Hosting, we want to create a community project with a business vision on deploying Smalltalk web applications.
