XML deserialization, XML undefined property becomes an empty list

By admin - Last updated: Wednesday, July 29, 2009

When deserialize XML into object, the object’s property becomes an empty list even if the property is absence from the XML, the expected behavior is the property is null. For example, given a class public class MyFoo     {         public string Id { get; set; }         […]

By admin - Last updated: Thursday, February 26, 2009

In order to join a sequence with a customized separator in XSLT 1.0, similar to C# function string.Join( array, separator), I’ve come up with a template which takes the sequence and separator as parameter. Given a sample XML <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?> <?xml-stylesheet type=”text/xsl” href=”ElementJoin.xslt”?> <Root>   <Years>     <int>2008</int>     <int>2009</int>   […]

I’ve done some quick test on WCF interoperability of the SOAP versions and WSAddressing. SOAP 1.1 vs SOAP 1.2 SOAP 1.2 is an extended version of SOAP 1.1, it does everything that SOAP 1.1 offers, SOAP 1.2 provides clear processing model and it is based on XML infoset, it has no dependency on the underlying […]

XSLT XML transformation vs Object mapping

By admin - Last updated: Monday, February 9, 2009

I’ve run some tests on transformation from one XML schema to the other so that I can compare the performance between XSLT and XmlSerializer with object mapping as well as the Pros and Cons. It appears XSLT transformed my source XML to target XML faster than the object mapping since XSLT doesn’t take the type […]

Using ServiceCapture, Ethereal, Charles or some SOAP sniffer software to inspect the XML sent on wire. Here is XML snippet in the SOAP header. <wsse:usernametoken wsu:id=”….” xmlns:wsu=”….”>     <wsse:username>xxxxxx</wsse:username>     <wsse:password type=”….”>            fCQCp/A9wFD/Gku0L+yF/u+0leg=      </wsse:password>     <wsse:nonce>eSM7S/iT0KyA39vuWPQcPQ==</wsse:nonce>     <wsu:created>1975-12-01T05:28:36Z</wsu:created>  </wsse:usernametoken> [STAThread] static void Main() { […]

XML Elements or Attributes in the world

By admin - Last updated: Thursday, November 1, 2007

Elements way is good at interoperability. Attributes way is good at size of the XML. <message>      <id>1</id>      <myword>Hello</myword> </message> <message id=”1″>      <myword>Hello</myword> </message> <message id=”1″>Hello</message> <message id=”1″ myword=”Hello” /> Which way do you prefer?
