XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents or other formats such as HTML for web pages, plain text or XSL Formatting Objects, which may subsequently be converted to other formats, such as PDF, PostScript and PNG.
XML is simply markup for data. That’s it. XML is not a magic wand; it does not specify how data is transmitted over the wire, it does not specify how data is stored. XML simply determines the format of the data: what you do with the data is up to you. That said, the real power behind XML is not solely its ability to represent data: XML’s real power lies in ancillary technologies that, when combined with XML, provide robust solutions, and XPath is one of those ancillary technologies.
We all know that XmlTextWriter renders XML data to a string. This string remains in the memory of the C# program. However if you want perform some string manipulation as a part of the XML to a string generation, we you have to extend the XmlTextWriter and override its methods as per the need.
In this post we are going to see how we can convert a object into JSON string.
You don’t need to download an additional library to serialize/deserialize your objects to/from JSON. Since .NET 3.5, .NET can do it natively.
