public class XSerializerRegistry
extends XRegistry<XSerializer>

System-wide registry for XES serializer implementations. Applications can use this registry as a convenience to provide an overview about serializeable formats, e.g., in the user interface. Any custom serializer implementation can be registered with this registry, so that it transparently becomes available also to any other using application.
