23. XML and WDDX > 23.1. Working with XML

Working with XML

As I mentioned in the introduction, ColdFusion MX makes working with XML easy. With ColdFusion MX, you can easily do things such as generate your own XML, parse existing XML using native ColdFusion functions, search through XML using XPath, and transform XML using XSLT and XSL.

Because this chapter does not cover XML itself in any great detail, I recommend reading up on the topic if you aren’t already familiar with it. Two excellent resources to consider are O’Reilly’s http://xml.com web site and the O’Reilly book Learning XML by Erik T. Ray.

A 30-Second XML Primer

The basics of XML are simple to learn. Because you’ll need a basic understanding of XML for the rest of this chapter to make any sense, I’m including what I call a 30-second XML primer to get you started. It doesn’t teach you everything, but it should set you well on your way.
