For example, a Web site based in ColdFusion can share data with a Web site based in ASP. Data in ColdFusion would be translated into XML, sent to an ASP server, translated out of XML and into VBScript.
WDDX assigns a specific module for each supported language. The module will translate (or serialize) the native data structures into an abstract form represented as XML, or deserialize the WDDX XML into a native data structure.
Browser support for WDDX includes version 3.0 and higher Web browsers (I.E. and Netscape) for Windows, Unix and Macintosh platforms.
