This set of two components extends the ColdFusion XML Doc object. They simplify and accelerate XML operations for CF6.1 and above, utilizing XPath more effectively. This is done by using a Java XPath API.

and here for what's new in v1.0


Change log:

* Added the ability to supply an attribute collection to the CreateElement() method

* When passing string values to CreateElement() and Update(), the code no longer escapes any xml characters within the text. This means that the string is now treated as an Xml fragment.

* Added the MapNamespace() method


ColdFusion 6.1 and above (not Bluedragon)
