Creating, Writing and Accessing XML-Like files

Hello,

 

I am a beginner dev. Could someone please direct me to some resources? I want to achieve a few things with my new app.

 

In one part of the app, I want to create a form to write data to a file in XML or similar language.  In another part of the app, I want to be able to read the data file.

 

What code/language would I use to achieve this?

 

Also, how would I be able to make the data file stored in the user's file system (for exporting and access after app is closed)

 

Thank you very much.

Re: Creating, Writing and Accessing XML-Like files

There at least two libraries that support xml.

Here is a list of libraries supported on PB:

https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/documentation/com.qnx.doc.native_sdk.devguide/com.qnx.doc...

I cannot give you examples now but choose a library: expat or libxml2 and google for documentation.

In Qt, you will find QXmlStreamReader (for reading XML) and QXMLStreamWriter ( for writing XML)
