As i read pickle module is Python-spesific. I need to talk with a Java 
application and get the infortion that it will send. What i do right now is 
listening a socket and reding the string that is sent by the java 
application. So the java application is sending a string and i am reading and 
parsing it and getting the related infortion i need. A more professional way 
may be the reading the object itself. Is it possible to get the array for ex. 
object that is sent from the Java application with sockets?
