Name Value Description
Binary 0 Encodes information using its binary representation 'byte-by-byte' according their endianess. This type of encoding additionally uses meta-fields (within the binary data-stream) to identify for example the number of characters in a String or the number of items in an array. The resulting binary data-stream is transported with the most less effort in comparison will all supported encoding types.
Xml 1 Encodes information using XML-based data-serialization. The thereby String-based representation of the information encoded describes the transported data in a human readable way.
