I have 2 entities (student, course) that I want to serialize & deserialize without using Generic & Reflection.

This would be in a project three layers and using .NET 1.0.

Any ideas?

I do Serialization/Deserialization methods in both class but there is a error in Deserialize error:cannot convert expression type int to return type MyApp_Common.Student

So... manually implement Serialization/Deserialization methods in both class

no its not school homework

I do with .Net Framework 4 and reflection but I want do that with .Net Framework 1 and with out use reflection and Generic

Code:
private string SerializeStudent(Student student)
    {
        return student.Id.ToString() + ',' + student.FirstName + ',' + student.LastName;
    }
 
    private Student DeserializeStudent(string[] str)
    {
        Student student = new Student();
 
        return student.Id = 5;
 
    }
Thanks
