Example

Example

The XML input is a family tree. The input contains
Person
elements, which are recursively nested as shown:
<Person> <!-- Parent --> ... <Person> <!-- Child --> ... <Person> <!-- Grandchild --> ... </Person> </Person> </Person>
In a
Serializer
, an
EmbeddedSerializer
component can call itself recursively until all levels of nesting are exhausted.
In this example, the
schema_connections
property connects
Person
to
Person/Person
. This instructs the secondary instance of the serializer to process a nested level of the input. When the two
Person
elements have the same data type, it is sufficient to connect just the parent element (
Person
), and not the nested elements
(Person/*s/Name, Person/*s/BirthDate
, etc.)
