Chapter 16. Using WDDX > Anatomy of a WDDX Packet

Anatomy of a WDDX Packet

Now that you have an idea about how the <cfwddx> tag works, let's take a closer look at the WDDX packets themselves. You've already seen WDDX packets as displayed in a browser (Figures 16.1 and 16.3), but packets aren't really meant to be displayed on Web pages. It makes more sense to look at them as if they were data files, kind of like a database or delimited text file.

NOTE

Really, the principal idea behind WDDX is that the XML for each WDDX packet is created and parsed automatically, so you don't actually ever need to know or understand the anatomy of the packets themselves. That said, I thought you might be curious about the various elements (tags) in the packets. Feel free to skip this section if you want!
