attribute vs. CDATA
Hello,

I'm new to XML. I cannot decide if I should save information as attributes or as CDATA. Below are the two versions. Which way should I go and why?

Thanks,
Lajos

attribute version


CDATA version
Hi lajos,
you should go for the first one (the attribute version).

Reason: name and password are attributes of a user.

Only if you are not able to represent in the first method you can go for the second method.

You can go for CDATA under following situations.

<Building name="Build1">
<Floor name="Floor1">
<Cabin name="c1"/>
<Cabin name="c2"/>
</Floor>
</Building>

or

<Building name="Build1">
<Floor name="Floor1"/>
<Floor name="Floor2"/>
</Building>

Regards,
Shiva
