Mapping Between Property Sets and XML

An arbitrary property set hierarchy can be serialized to XML and an XML document can be converted to a property set hierarchy using the XML Converter business service. This service is used by the Business Service Simulator screen to save property set inputs and outputs to a file from eScript.

Each part of a property set object has a corresponding XML construct. Table 4 shows the mappings between parts of a property set hierarchy and their XML representation.
