On the face of it that doesn't make sense. What sort of "results" are you
getting, and how to you envision that it would be stored to a class? Are
these results bytecode?

If they are bytecode, then how do you envision they be encoded into a String?

My results are a mix of strings, arrays etc. I can write them to a

that has some data structures to store all the things I need, then I
can create a new Results object, and save the results object.

That clears up my misunderstanding. You had said you'd save it as a "class
file", but your explanation that that is not what you intend clears up the matter.

Saving an object only begs the question. You still have to decide whether to
save as raw strings, Properties or XML files, to name three text options, or
as a serialized binary object, or with some other encoding scheme (Base64,
uuencode, ...). This puts you right back into your original question.
