            throws Exception
Encodes higher-level message objects into binary or protocol-specific data. MINA invokes encode(IoSession, Object, ProtocolEncoderOutput) method with message which is popped from the session write queue, and then the encoder implementation puts encoded IoBuffers into ProtocolEncoderOutput.

Throws:
Exception - if the message violated protocol specification
