Zimuel writes; Last friday, in occasion of the April Zend Framework Bug-Hunt, I started to look at this bug: ZF-3257. This is an issue related to the Zend_Json class that occurs during the conversion from XML to JSON for some specific XML documents, like this one:
The result using Zend_Json::fromXml($xml, false) , where false indicated the usage of XML attributes, was:
As you can see the bar value, of the a element, is not represented in JSON. This issue comes also with other XML documents, and in general when an XML node has a single character data child, any attributes are lost.
For instance, the following code:
$xml = '
echo Zend_Json::fromXml($xml, false);
Produced the output:
in this case the attribute id and the value foo are lost.
