Motivation: I wrote QXml because I didn't found a php class that was able to handle array to xml conversion sufficiently. QXML is able to preserve attributes and does a lot more. An array structure is geared to the structure of a simple xml object. SimpleXMLElement attributes are printed out (via print_r()-method) like the following: [@attributes] Analogous to this convention you have to declare a nested array by setting its name to @attributes: array ( "@attributes" => array("id" => "myID") "@textNode" => "MyTextNode Data" ); If you declare a nested array with @textNode as key, then a CDDATE escaped text node will be created. Otherwise new elements will be created. QSet is my favorite array helper class that allows array handling with ease. I adopted it from CakePHP. I renamed it, reconditioned it a bit and made some useful enhancements. QSet and QXML are working together. It is a strong team. It allows e.g. following: ARRAY to XML Conversion XML to Array Conversion XML to Object Conversion Array to Object Conversion (vice versa) By including the vendor classes Services_JSON from PEAR and the IBM xml2json class you can do this additionally: XML to JSON Conversion Array to JSON Conversion and so on. The other classes are for now just example classes. The QReflection class is an extraction from another project where i use it for documentary demands and purposes. I hope you enjoy this class as i do. best regards Thomas Schäfer
