I used BOOST_FUSION_ADAPT_STRUCT in conjuction with boost.serialization to
automate serialization of messages between clients and server in my
application. It just reflects simple C++ structs with data to XML/TEXT for
pass them throughout network.
After few experiments with RTTI, some kind of type erasure (with "variant"
"any" types), true object-oriented approach and boost.fusion I have found
the last one gives more benefits and fit in static type system of C++ more

As alternate you look at implementation of serialization in
Different ORM libraries, but they use external tools
Message passing and RMI libraries like Apache.Thief or libcppa, but they use
I think boost.fusion is the only one way to implement true compile-time
reflection. With certain restrictions, of course.
