    Fastest method to load external data?

    Level 7

      Currently we load external xml file and parse it for our internal use.

      However, parsing take time, is it possible to reduce this step?

      Such as serialize / de-serialize?

          Are you using Xpath API to parse your xml? This will help some doing just queries but some parsing will still need to be done.
          Another solution is to not load xml but use Flash remoting. Flash remoting is a binary format and much faster. WIth Flash remoting you can pass all your items in the native formats defined in PHP, ASP.Net, or ColdFusion.
