Deos Aikau support handling xml response?

Jump to solution

All Aikau Tutorials are based on JSON Response which are returned from the repository, which will be rendered on the page. Is it also possible to use xml as Input for Aikau Widgets?

[...]

name: "alfresco/lists/AlfList",
config: {
   loadDataPublishTopic: "ALF_CRUD_GET_ALL",
   loadDataPublishPayload: {
     url: "url/to/fetch/xml_data"
   },

[...]

Thank you very much in advance for the answer.

Best regards

All default Aikau ReST handling has been designed with JSON in mind. There was never any intention of supporting XML in any way close to a "first class citizen".

Though to be honest, why would you want to handle XML? Only to consume some extremely old, legacy ReST endpoint. There should be no ReST endpoints in the Alfresco Repository that (only) provide XML...

Thank you for your answer. I try to get data from an external service, that returns the information only in XML. Then I will convert the xml into json, for displaying in share via aikau.
