C++/Tree: In-Memory XML Data Binding

The C++/Tree mapping generates C++ classes that represent data types defined in XML Schema, a set of parsing functions that convert XML documents to a tree-like in-memory object model, and a set of serialization functions that convert the object model back to XML. For an introduction to the C++/Tree mapping, refer to the Hello World Example from the C++/Tree Mapping Getting Started Guide.


The following diagram shows the main integration areas of the C++/Tree mapping and related technologies:
