Boxlang WDDX Module

v1.0.0-SNAPSHOT BoxLang Modules

⚡︎ BoxLang Module: WDDX Module

The WDDX module provides the bridge between the WDDX exchange format and BoxLang. It involves reading and parsing XML, converting data types, handling errors, and ensuring performance and compatibility. The module enables the integration of legacy systems with new applications.

It provides the wddx component along with its actions of bx2wddx, wddx2bx, bx2js and wddx2js. Note that if the compatibility module is installed in the BoxLang runtime, the usage of bx in the action changes to cfml.

Important Note: WDDX is, effectively, no longer supported for new development and its continued use as a data interchange format is is highly discouraged. This module should only be used to maintain compatibility for legacy code and developers should be encouraged to sunset its usage.

Contributed Functions

The compat module will contribute the following components globally:

  • wddx ( e.g. <cfwddx.../> and <bx:wddx.../> depending on the template type, and wddx...; in script )
