[coldbox-3.5.3] serializing object into XML

like WDDX, what is the model used by marshallData() or serializeJSON() when returning a serialized object? Also, Is there a C++ library to deserialize the XML into a C++ object/class?

i’m asking because our C++ programmer will be consuming an API i’ve written and right now they are traversing the XML to extract data and converting it to an object would make their life much easier.

this is specifically for XML.

the real issue for the programmer is having to traverse “struct” nodes (and other ‘object describing’ nodes). this could be resolved by deserializing the xml into a C++ member object.

Why does he not search for a json library for C++ there are hundreds of them out there.

I’m being pre-emptive to what will most likely happen. Our programmer is an old dog .
