Subject Re: Sending data in an XML format using a string type
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 15:52:48 GMT

This project is for health care use and there is an industry standard data
format which is XML defined by the HL7 organization.  Also the XML data
format is used in a dom tree.  In your earlier message you mention the
right quoting, do you mean double quotes around the complete XML string?  I
still have the question why is it different between the c and java

Yes, but the idea is to transport structures, not bulk data.
The structure is what makes XML in XMLRPC usefull. You eyeball
it and you immediately see the data. You load it into
your application and immediately have your objects with
attributes to work with. Now, when all you transport is a
big string with XML, you are basically double en- and
decoding. Sorry but for me this sounds silly :-)

Its like that russian pupet "matrjoschka"
where this a nice child game to open puppet
after puppet to still find another, smaller one
in it :-)
