From: datafeed::gmx::net at: 31-Jan-2003 20:32 All of the standard programming environments on the Web (ColdFusion, Perl, ASP, Java, JavaScript, PHP, etc) include native data structures such as arrays, recordsets or value pairs. WDDX provides a module for each language that will automatically serialize or translate the native data structures into an abstract representation in XML, or deserialize WDDX XML into a native data structure. For example, you could use WDDX to take a complex array in ColdFusion, serialize it into XML, send it to an ASP server, and then deserialize from XML into a VBScript array object with all the types natively converted. This conversion process between languages is relatively transparent to developers by shifting any XML processing and interaction into the WDDX modules, eliminating developers from having to directly program or manipulate XML themselves.
